Coronavirus outbreak: 22-year-old who tested positive shares her struggle in self-isolation

The pandemic coronavirus outbreak has led to a scary number of cases globally and they are only increasing with each coming day. The deadly virus which originated from China has led to a lot of questions in the mind of people.

But if you’re wondering what getting coronavirus is really like, you might want to take a look at this Twitter thread by a 22-year-old woman in America who has been struck down by the contagious COVID-19.

It’s worth bearing in mind that coronavirus can manifest itself differently in different people – some may get severe symptoms, while others can be completely asymptotic. But in the interests of raising awareness, and “to relieve any stress/anxiety some may have” about the pandemic, California-based Bjonda Haliti decided to share what she experienced.

The symptoms began, explained Bjonda, just like you’ve heard on the news. With a “dry cough”. Which, just in case you weren’t sure, the NHS describes as “tickly and doesn’t produce any phlegm (thick mucus)”.

The “mild” dry cough came accompanied by a “slightly sore throat”, as well as some tiredness, the young woman shared. The following day it progressed to a headache and sore eyes, then a fever, and eventually – on day four – shortness of breath.

Twitter user Bjonda was sick for around 10 days in total, at which point she received the test results that showed she did have coronavirus. She self-isolated throughout, and continues to do so, but says she feels “great and healthy” now.

Here’s the Twitter thread describing her journey:

But the most important thing remains to follow the advice of the government during this pandemic time; if you or someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms (a cough, a fever) isolate for 14 days. If you don’t have symptoms, avoid going out as much as possible and exercise social distancing.
