do covid-19 older patience fully recover ?

Postby reno » Wed May 20, 2020 7:47 am

we have 3 friends and family who are said to now be tested negative for covid-19. they all still to have breathing problem .they are all in the 50 to 60 year old range. just because you have tested negative and released from a dr. im guessing your still going to fighting a uphill battle. one of them been waiting weeks to see a dr.over her breathing problems. a second one was sent home yesterday by his company and told not to return until he gets a 2nd negative test .(even do he been back to work for about 10 days) also there no paycheck for these people even do there on medical leave. one just retired so she ok paycheck wise. one a hospital nurse and the 3rd works for a major manufacturer. but do to the nature of this virus company's really don't have to pay out sick leave .( or should we say there insurance company's ) :bang

My cousin who had it, she still has lingering breathing issues. It's like pneumonia. You can be over the pneumonia, but the lungs have been damaged, and they need time to heal and fully recover. In some cases there's permanent damage.

With Covid19 there's massive inflammation of the lungs involved, and it's not unusual to have the complication of fluid in the lungs afterwards. Some people even get pneumonia afterwards.
