How did you catch it?
It is impossible to determine. I use the subway, I work in a crowded place, my husband is from the NYPD.
How did you know you had the virus?
About the fourth day after feeling the symptoms, my husband went to do the test and we knew that he was infected. I had the same symptoms. Here [in New York] it's not that easy to test. I will stay home, unless I have a breathing problem.
What were your symptoms?
My husband had a fever, body pain and chills, and I felt the same and felt a pain in my back and that pressure was reflected in my chest, diarrhea is one of the symptoms and three days ago I lost my sense of taste. and smell. At night I get a fever and body discomfort. You feel good during the day, bad at night. The most difficult thing is to keep your mind positive.

Do you take any medication?
I am not taking medication, there is no medication for COVID-19 but I do take hot ginger tea and homemade recipes that friends have shared with me. This coronavirus does not manifest itself the same in all people.
