Fortunately, deaths yet, but in most cases, patients complain of shortness of breath, severe cough, high fever and other unpleasant symptoms. Recently in the publication the Daily Mail published an article where its history has shared one of the first people who contracted the virus. In the early days he regarded his serious condition as the effects of colds, and the doctors put him a diagnosis of pneumonia. Only when his condition became terrible, it has become clear that it is a more dangerous disease.
One of the first infected by the coronavirus people can be called the 25-year-old Connor reed. Guy originally from the UK but when he was overtaken by a dangerous illness, he lived in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is home to a coronavirus. In another country he has lived for more than seven months and taught English at a local school. From time to time he visited the market where I could become infected with coronavirus. It is believed that the source of the disease is sold where the meat of bats, however, the young teacher says that there had never seen such “delicacies”. However, there is a large number sold whole carcasses of pigs and lambs.
1 day. Onset of the disease
The first symptoms of coronavirus Connor Reid felt 25 November 2019, when the coronavirus nobody knew. He started sneezing and his eyes appeared blurred. In General, the disease manifested as a common cold, so the guy decided not to skip work, being sure that no one will.
On the second day of the disease’connor first felt pain in the throat. In principle, this symptom is also characteristic of the flu, so one of the first carriers of the coronavirus began to remember a folk remedy against colds. He remembered that when as a child he had a cold, the mother poured him a mug of hot water with honey. Connor decided to follow this example and had a “medicinal” drink.
Day 3. A folk remedy for colds
Despite the fact that he did not smoke and took alcohol only for compelling reasons, Connor Reid decided to strengthen his drink by adding a bit of whiskey. He thought that an impromptu hot toddy will help him to overcome cough and other symptoms associated with the common cold. Why not come up with people to get better.
Day 4. A good night’s sleep
After drinking the drink the man felt better and, according to him, slept like a baby. He left still a bit hot punch for the evening, but continued to go to work. In this case the disease developed,Connor Reid began to hope that soon the terrible symptoms will completely disappear.
In the following days, the English teacher, feel good, and his weakened condition was explained by the effects of a cold. But on the seventh day of the disease he realized that he was dealing with something more serious. According to him, his head unbearably hummed, his eyes burned, and my throat seemed to be compressed. The disease reached his chest and he started coughing. It is noteworthy that these symptoms struck him suddenly, so he did not go to work for fear of infecting all the “flu”.
Day 8. Bed rest
A young teacher again went to work, and warned that it could miss a week. He shared that this day he could not get out of bed because of the pain in the bones and just lying there, watching TV. However, he tried hard not to cough because it was causing him great pain.
After a week of illness Connor noticed that his cat also started to feel very sick. They both lost their appetite, so the guy didn’t come up with anything better than to drink whiskey neat. Because hot punch with honey he did not get much use.
Day 11. The death of a kitten
After two days of weakness, pet Connor died. Physically the guy feel better, but the death of a kitten crushed him emotionally. Most likely, the cat was struck by a coronavirus, the type of FCoV (Feline coronavirus), which is often fatal. The symptoms of this disease are hidden and the animal just weakens the immune system, appetite and problems with digestion. In particular, we are talking about diarrhea and accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity. The combination of these symptoms cause complications that lead to death.
After a temporary weakening of the symptoms Connor began to feel even worse than before. He had difficulty breathing, was having dizziness and overall it felt like hell. According to him, he never was so very sick, because when he was breathing, his lungs sounded like shrinking paper bags. He could not call a doctor to the house because of the high cost, so we decided to go by taxi to the University Zhongnan hospital, where many foreign doctors. There he underwent a six-hour examination, after which he was diagnosed with pneumonia.
The boy returned home late in the evening, but did not take prescribed by doctors antibiotics. He felt that his body will cease to be responsive to the medication and antibiotics will not help if in the future he will be sick even more. In the following days, the patient began to feel better, pneumonia is gone, but the sensations in my body was still awful, like it was run over by a steamroller. Finally, he felt well on the 24th day of the disease.
By the way, due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere significantly reduced
36 day. Out on the street
After a month of this horrible disease, Connor decided to go to the store. About the coronavirus has already learned the whole world and the Chinese government began to restrict travel to other countries. The guy decided to stock up on food and other necessary things, because in such circumstances there may be a shortage of goods. His fears were confirmed, because soon, Wuhan residents were forbidden to leave their homes.
Only after such a long period of time Connor received a notice from the hospital that he had coronavirus. He decided that now he has immunity, but it is still forced to wear a medical mask. If he refused to do so, he could be arrested. And the thing is that the Chinese authorities seriously intend to stop the spread of coronavirus.
