My area isn't a hot zone by any means, we only have 14 verified cases of Covid 19, and I still got sick. I'm #15. And, about 6 of the people to get it in my town have died so far.


Yikes hope you recover ok

Me too. I've never been this sick before, and it really sucks.

May I ask, do you live in a hot zone? Originally my locale was thought to be one though fortunately that turned out not to be the case.

NYC.

Understandable. I’m not too far from NYC, just over the border in PA. Thankfully my direct area isn’t bad though I constantly see NJ and NY license plates all around me.

I've been sick about a month and a half so far. It's stayed in my system for a really long time, and I have good days and bad days. They won't let me go to the hospital unless I spike a fever of 110 or more. My highest fever was 104.6, three weeks ago. So, I'm hoping to be better soon.

I thought anything above 102F is "get to a hospital ASAP". 110F is unheard of to me.

Our hospital lacks the capacity to treat everybody with the virus. And, they don't really want poor people there with no health insurance. Is what I'm taking away from it. They told me that there was nothing that they could do for me, and I had to either be suffocating to death, dying, or have a temperature of 110 or more for them to let me have a respirator and a hospital bed.

Wow, this is heavy. Please stay strong, Zantra. I'll be praying for you.

Well you're dead at that point if you have a fever that high so it sounds like they're basically telling you to frig off.

^Panic level is 104 here... but yea, if I hit 104 I know how unable to do shit I am... and how miserable it is. Couldn't imagine 110.

Yeah, it's been a super rough time, and I was in pretty good physical shape before this started, now I feel like I'm 100 years old. I can barely move without feeling exhausted, and I have weird bruises all over my body.

I live in a weird area, it's pretty rural but we live directly in between bigger cities and tourist towns so we get a lot of through traffic.  Here, for the most part, we all wear masks indoors but not outdoors and follow the signs/lines at checkouts and stuff but other than that we've mostly got on like normal (except for the first few weeks when everybody panicked) so we've been lucky.  Our only real outbreak was within the chicken factories but that was very isolated within certain communities.  

 

Crazy situation for sure, I think a lot of us around here are just trying to follow the facts/statistics without being reckless.  Unfortunately, like most things, facts are getting lost and statistics are being twisted.  I know a lot of people though who just...well, let's just say they are people I'd trust...and they are VERY scared, not about the virus but just about where the world/the US is headed.  Usually doesn't bother me, but enough people have been on my case I've even started prepping a bit myself "just in case".

Yeah, now is a good time to stock up on guns and ammo. All this looting and riots BS is ridiculous. The US has gone full blown stupid.

Shit, sorry, folks; just saw this. 080 08 7577.

That said, I posted this on Reddit as well, and I couldn't find it on Target or Brickseek either when I initially posted it.

Not the first time the U.S. or other countries have had riots. It's expected when you have large crowds. In majority of cases, looting is always temporary. Even in the U.S. now, places aren't being looted daily despite protest continuing. Definitely protect yourself though, but you'll likely be fine.

Were you wearing a mask and social distancing? Just wondering about my chances, even though I go almost nowhere.

I caught it three months ago, from my mom back when information was still vague, and they weren't sure what would protect you from it. She got really sick, and I had to take care of her, as I am her caregiver already, because she is disabled. And, I caught it from her. Luckily it had a pretty weak effect on her, but it must have mutated at some point or something, because it's been ravaging my body and my health for three months now, with no signs of disappearing.

Probably doesn’t seem like it but if you are not in the hospital with it consider yourself lucky. See patients every day on ventilators and having to have a machine to oxygenate their blood because their lungs are filled with fluid. 
 

you are fortunate.

I never said that I wasn't. And, I have explained previously that I tried to go to the hospital, and they have rejected me. They told me they wouldn't take me unless I was about to die.

I don't think it has to have mutated. It can just affect people very differently, depending on blood type, etc.. not even known for sure yet. 

 

Maybe your hospital is overwhelmed, or just bad or refusing you if you can't pay, but I think the criteria to be hospitalized is difficulty breathing and proof with low oxygen levels.  If you don't have low oxygen levels, there would be no need for a ventilator and not much they would do if they did admit you.  Since it has been thought it may be a vascular disease with weird clotting (which is probably what is causing your bruises), I would be more concerned about possible vascular effects.

They told me that they aren't accepting anybody to the hospital with a fever of lower than 104 degrees.

I am a physician. If they told you that then that is nonsense. There are criteria for hospital admittance. Predominantly based on breathing and how well you are oxygenating you’re blood. Other things can play a factor as well but no hospital is basing admissions solely on fever. 

You should find a different hospital if that’s what they told you.

I work in dialysis and the nephrologists that I work described how numerous COVID patients developed kidney failure as a side effect.  I would recommend getting a work up from your PCP asap.  Just like scottsman mentioned, you might have some signs and symptoms of vascular disease developing.
