We have been told that the first case of Coronavirus/COVID-19 death in the U.S. was in February 2020.
First, we were told it was February 29 in Kirkland, Washington.
Then that is was earlier on February 6 and 17 in California.
But I and others who I have spoken to believe that the first cases of COVID-19 were with us many months earlier.
Both I and my wife developed extreme coughing around the September/October timeframe.
The coughing didn’t go away for months!
As is now being reported with COVID-19, it was like it reactivates again and again,
I went to the MinuteClinic and was prescribed antibiotics.
The cough lingered and got worse a second time.
I think I went another time to Minute Clinic or to Urgent Care and got a stronger antibiotic.
The cough lingered and got worse yet a third time.
As I become weaker and more sick (with fever at some point(s)), I found myself waking up and barely able to even get out of bed.
I forced myself back over to Urgent Care again.
I was given the flu test and it was not the flu.
And no one seemed to know what it was!
They told me that they were getting so many cases…I believe they said each location was seeing about 100 patients a day!
I was so weak I just laid on the doctors exam table half falling asleep and barely able to move to get up.
I was given yet an even stronger antibiotic and I believe some steroid medication.
After about 3-4 horrible months and almost near collapse, it finally started to get better.
I don’t remember ever getting anything like this!
I hadn’t traveled anywhere either.
Lots of people seem to have had a similar experience.
Was this COVID-19 or some precursor to it?
I/We may never know the truth.
But these symptoms and sickness was not normal.
And the high number of cases I was hearing about was beyond anything I can remember.
As we know everything about this COVID-19 is not normal as we can all attest to after weeks and months of global lockdown.
The reason that you are hearing all the confusing and contradictory communications and crisis from the “experts” and in the media is because the professionals are confused!
And we are left to wonder: when will we find out the truth about what this is, when it started, what the real dangers to us are now and into the future, and whether there will really ever be a cure for it? 😉
