    I think that is what had me in the hospital four times in the last three months, intensive care three times.

    That smells good but I don't think a cooking contest is what is in mind. But that could be good Covid Cooking.

    I guess I got mixed up between the two threads with Corona in the title.

    Reading that article and trying to back track. December was working and everyone got sick. Didn't feel like cold or flu. Body ache, nausea, diarrhea, and things just didn't smell or taste. Working in chem plant some things are taken as occupational hazards. We all carried bottles of Mucinex, two weeks we got through. But then the same shit came back about 3 weeks later. I remember after my lay off I went to buy radios from Woody up in Houston. He had been sick the week before and his wife had caught it from him. They had gone to doctors office day before I met him at Buckies. She was ok, I advised the HEB brand Mucinex. It kicked it for me.

    Wondering could all of this actually been this Chinese Virus?

    Interesting. Both my wife and I had symptoms similar to colds Thanksgiving 2019. Lasted until just after beginning of Jan. 2020. Sinus congestion, raspy cough, drippy nose, etc.

    Whatever it was cleared up only to come back three weeks later. OK now. o_O
