I'm wondering if I have been infected by this synthetic paranoia virus. I've been sick for the last 2 days, strong fever that I had to control when it neared 38, muscular, joints, occular pain and intense fatigue. And this about 3 days after an outdoor party (more like a reunion) with old friends not seen for a long time but none with symptoms but heavy smokers, so somes coughing from them. I am in my 50 and relatively in good health.
Took vitamin C, D3, B2, zinc, anti-inflammatories and blood thinners in the form of omega-3 and aspirin, and tylenol for the fever.
Symptoms are all gone and no longer taking antipyretic.
I hope I will not be horribly crushed by a farm tractor in the next days, because I will be considered a COnVID-19 fatality.
My theory seem to be probable. When I arrived at the party (late) there was someone who work at a CHSLD but they were departing. She was inside a vehicule and saluted me as she was departing. I shaked the hand of her husband. Imposible to directly contaminate me as she was quite a distance away. I probably sat on the couch at the same place as her for the rest of the night. Now two week later it is reported in the news that this CHSLD where she work (old people care home in Kebecistan) is having an outbreak of COnVID. Improbable for me to be the source as I had not aproached anybody for two week before the event!
That would make the bug incredibly contagious, but in my case a very mild case of flu and others present at the party did not report any symptom as of now, so I think reasonable the statement that over 80% of infected peoples have no symptoms whatsoever.
If my theory is true, masking would not have prevented my contamination.
