It's mutated rather a lot, and the vaccinated people have helped as well, because a virus that doesn't kill the host mutates and becomes more infectious, but less deadly.

Get well soon anyway.

I've been chugging fluids like there's no tomorrow, but I hardly ever urinate. The sweat was coming like a river

Go on Amazon and buy "Lugols Iodine".
Take 1 small drop in a big glass of water, per day.

Also get Vitamin D3 plus K2 supplements, they'll take 2 weeks to kick in, but will help you avoid "Long Covid".

These things helped my dad to survive it, just after having a heart attack.
He caught it at the start of last year, before vaccines were available.

I was traveling so I went to a North Carolina emergency room for meds to treat symptoms. I handed to doctor my prescription bottles one by one to make sure no interaction. I was given Paxlovid and a cough syrup and I retired to my hotel room. Took Paxlovid and cough syrup, went to bed for 16 hours. When I woke up, felt real bad so I googled Paxlovid and discovered it causes problems with my current medications. Never took another dose. I called the ER and asked them why this issue was not seen ahead of time. "I'm sorry sir we can't give medical advice over the phone". I said "well hell you gave me the damn stuff, what if it kills me?". "Oh, I don't think it will kill you, sir"

Drank a couple cups of coffee and drove the remaining 3 hours home

Much better now. Very tired. The chit wears you down. The worst part is I can't taste my beers. I think I'll work Thursday and Friday

~approx 9-10 days duration. Pretty much over now. Seems like there's going to be a few days of post-covid fatigue.

I've had flu way worse than this, but not for two freakin' weeks

What was the goal when scientists were cooking this chit up? Bio-weaponry?
