    I know a guy that had it in April.

    I also know a family of 5, where 4 tested positive but they don't believe it as they say they took several tests and half say neg half say pos....and no symptoms.

    Whenever I ask people, VERY rarely do they know anyone personally.

    Anyone find it odd we struggle to find folks yet we're told numbers are thru the roof?

    The only people I know who were infected with it were my oral surgeon's family, they caught it while sharing a vaca house with his brother's family and they all had minor cold symptoms for a few days.

    I didn't know anyone about 7 weeks ago, besides a couple on this forum

    I know about 25 now. Including two clients' families of 4.

    Most Asymptomatic, a few with minor symptoms, and one who was hospitalized for oxygen and steroids much like Trump

    Never got tested but I think I had it back in March. Dry cough, body ache, fatigue, runny nose. Didn't think much of it accept over the course of 48hrs my chest filled with fluids. I was wheezing. NEVER, EVER had these kinds of conditions in the past. I don't have asthma nor ever did. Went into the hospital and they chalked it up to a lung infection. They had me perform a breathing test with a mask and some fogger. Tested me for the flu. (came back negative). Gave me antibiotics and steroids. Got over it after a few weeks.

    About 20 or so. My gf had it a few weeks ago. Somehow I didn’t get it. Her grandfather is in the hospital with it now. I know a guy who died from it just before Thanksgiving. He was 74 and had diabetes but he’d definitely still be with us today had he avoided getting it.

    seems some of you know many people. In all honesty, did not expect that answer. I know folks in all corners of this country and do not hear this from them.

    My ex-boss. They promptly fired her when they found out she was pregnant and the Covid hit right about the time she told them.

    Within the family 5. Family of 4 (cousins) down in DC and my Dad who is over 85. All survived. However in the home my Dad is in, it rampage through the residents. I believe the count at the home was 12.

    Supposedly 19 at work atm, and 19 suspected (folks in contact). The number has varied since this shit started, and not one has suffered anything more than flu like symptoms at worst, and most with none or a common cold...

    Most are saying "thanks for the free vacation!". Must be nice making $35+/hr to get projects done around the house everyday for 2 weeks...

    Myself, the wife and kids have had it. 15-20 people that I work with have had it now. So far all very mild symptoms or asymptomatic with no hospitalization of anyone I know personally
