#WarOnVirus: US Resident Shares Her COVID-19 Symptoms From Day 1 to Day 10

At present, Coronavirus is one of the biggest challenges faced by the world. France, Italy, China, New Zealand, Poland and several states in India are completely locked down and people are forced to remain inside their homes. The most worrying thing is that most people are not aware of the symptoms of the corona. But if you see a sudden change in your health, then you should check yourself. If you are worried about early signs of the corona, then a 22-year-old girl from the US (who is corona positive) is telling you about body changes from day-1 to day-10. If you feel that this is happening to you too, then you can also get your corona test done.


Recently, a 22-year-old woman from the United States named Bjonda Haliti shared her story of recovering from coronavirus (symptoms) on social media. At the same time, it has also encouraged people to relieve stress during the outbreak of this pandemic. Bjonda began tweeting when she began to see early signs of this deadly disease. She initially read about her symptoms on the internet and started resting at home, but as the symptoms became severe she met her doctor and was found to be corona positive (during the test).

A US woman sharing her experience can help people understand the true symptoms of coronavirus. This information will also increase awareness among people about the outbreak of this disease. Talking about Corona on Twitter, Bjonda Haliti said that, "I am 22 years old and I was found to be corona positive. Posting this information on social media, I had a strange duality but I want to share my experience so that people of my age can get relief from the stress/anxiety caused by this epidemic".

From the first day till the 10th day, the woman has told about the signs of corona very easily: 

Day 1: Signs of corona begin with a mild dry cough and sore throat.

Day 2: I got a cold and fever (which is one of the main signs). During this time, I was having problems even while walking which kept hurting all night and I did not sleep at all. The next morning I kept sleeping.

Day 3: I had very little energy. I slept and had a fever. My symptoms at this time included dry cough, migraine, fever, chills, nausea. I decided to go to the doctor where the report of the flu came negative. The doctor told me that I probably had some kind of infection and they advised me to take 800 mg of ibuprofen with antibiotics. I decided to stay hydrated and stocked vitamins and probiotics. I got a fever again that night.

Day 4: Eventually my fever subsided but I noticed a new symptom, i.e. shortness of breath. It was very disturbing, I felt like someone had put bricks on my chest. I tried to investigate myself and found an online method (hold your breath and count to 10), which I completed without any complication. At this time I wanted to test the corona but it was very difficult to test the corona. I decided to keep myself apart and stay hydrated.
