Some terrifying tales of the toll that the coronadoom is taking on healthy youngish people struck down in the prime of their lives by the sniffles:
Young woman with COVID ‘knocked about’ by virus
A 25-year-old Sydney woman who tested positive to COVID-19 earlier this week says she’s been experiencing nausea and that the virus has “really knocked me about“.
Emily, who did not give her surname for privacy reasons, spoke to radio host Ben Fordham on 2GB just moments ago. She said she was at the same pizza restaurant as the NSW agriculture minister who revealed yesterday he had tested positive to the virus.
The nausea … is not something I’ve been expecting,
Emily said when asked to describe her symptoms.
It’s something that’s been consistent since yesterday. Thankfully I have nausea tablets now but the vomiting and the nausea is something that’s really taken me aback because I’ve been unable to keep liquids down and take Panadol for my headaches.
Emily said her friend, who she was dining with at Christo’s Pizzeria in Paddington, also tested positive to the virus and is staying in the same health hotel.
NSW authorities moved Emily into the special accommodation, which features hourly visits from nurses, because they were concerned she might pass on the virus to her housemates.
My friend is currently experiencing body aches and a tightness in her chest. She has asthma. I haven’t experienced the tightness in the chest but I have had body aches.
I consider myself to be quite healthy. So to be struggling as much as I am is incredibly alarming. Young people need to know this isn’t a joke, this isn’t a simple flu. I’ve had Influenza A before and it doesn’t compare.
Speaking of the NSW Agriculture minister (and proof that it’s not just drama queening young women, but also ghey phaggots), Adam Marshall is live streaming his epic battle with the sniffles:
“Like being hit by a bus”: Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall’s first days of COVID
NSW Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall says he feels intense fatigue, aches and a sore throat after testing positive to COVID-19 earlier this week.
Mr Marshall on Saturday morning recorded a video diary from his bed in isolation in Sydney, describing his first days of symptoms:
Sore joints, cold sweats, bit of a headache, sore throat and generally all you want to do is lay in bed.
It feels like being hit buy a bus. You sort of just feel so lethargic, a bit like having a flu, a bit congested.
You do not want to be down here at the moment. It’s not something any of you would want to get at all.
I’m about four days in, so hopefully I’ll get a clean bill of health at the end of the 14 days … please stay safe everyone.
At least when this goal umpire carried on like a pork chop it was funny:
It’s all so pathetic and embarrassing.
