22-year-old woman with positive coronavirus tweets her symptoms from Day 1 to Day 10
New Delhi : The confirmed cases of coronavirus are on a rise across the world and taking note of the seriousness a lot of advisories have been issued by different government and health governing bodies across the globe.
While World Health Organization (WHO) issued their advisory mentioning the symptoms and actions that must be taken to ensure the virus remains contained and do not spread in the nation, the affected people are also sharing their stories on the social media to warn people about the complications associated with it.
Recently, a woman, Bjonda Haliti, who claims to be affected with the virus has shared her story from having the symptoms to getting recovered from it. Her tweets are nothing less than a stress buster for many who are horrified with the pandemic outbreak.
I’m 22 years old and I tested positive for COVID-19.— Bjonda Haliti (@baeonda) March 18, 2020
I’ve been debating on posting, but I want to share my experience especially with those around my age to help bring awareness, and to relieve any stress/anxiety some may have due to the pandemic.
The woman is 22-year-old and belongs to the USA. She started to tweet when the symptoms started showing on her. She researched her symptoms on the internet and chose to take rest for the entire day. She then visited the doctor when things started to go downhill.
Day 1: It started with a mild DRY cough and a slightly sore throat. I was very tired that night.— Bjonda Haliti (@baeonda) March 18, 2020
The doctors prescribed her some medicines and recommended that she must keep herself hydrated. After having new symptoms, she tested herself for Coronavirus and kept herself quarantined at home until the result came. But the consumption of antibiotics improved her health and she started to feel energetic again.
After a couple of days, she tested positive of the coronavirus.
Moving them was uncomfortable. Doing some research I discovered this was just a migraine, but it didn’t go away at ALL. I slept all day.— Bjonda Haliti (@baeonda) March 18, 2020
She immediately informed her family members and those who came in her contact. She is now in self-isolation as suggested by doctors and maintaining the guidelines as mentioned by the USA's Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC).
The doctor told me I probably just had an infection and prescribed me antibiotics and 800mg of ibuprofen. I made sure to stay extremely hydrated and stocked up on vitamins and probiotics. That night, I still ran a fever.— Bjonda Haliti (@baeonda) March 18, 2020
