Just wanted to start a thread so we know who is alive and who is sick and maybe dead.

Guess if you're starting to think you are sick, you can post here.

I have had a small to large headache the last few days, and no fever whatsoever until now. I think my headache is/was just because I haven't been wearing my contacts, because I don't need them. Just checked my temperature, and it's 37.6, so 99..68F. If I don't get really sick, hope it's my exposure. It is fitting in with me being at casinos 3/14 and 3/15, so getting the first signs 13-14 days after my last time out. Was going to just cash my uncashed tickets in case they went bankrupt, but played because I couldn't say no to POSEV. I feel fine, I have been coughing wet the last few weeks, but now it's dry a bit. Right now, I feel I'm going to be fine, but you never know, we're not in control of these things. I'm not noticing anything unusual, no joint pain, no sore throat, I'll know soon if my brother and sister get sick soon.

FYI don't know a single soul, friend or relative, who has claimed to know "anyone who has claimed to know anyone" who has gotten the virus. That's kind of remarkable but may show our forced isolation is working. In our county, two people who had been overseas and came back, made the news - they have it.

Yet for all I know I've been dodging this and that situation near at hand where I could have got it and will be hearing soon about more folks around here and I've just been lucky.

I've already forgotten if someone here at WoV said they have it - I seem to remember someone saying they might have it. He might post again in this thread - I hope. And of course you, ONM, are saying you're wondering.

There's a known blackjack player who seems to think he might have it, apparently he's waiting for test results. He sounds miserable and probably felt terrible but all things considering he seems to be okay for now.

Of course I'm wondering, I have a low-grade fever, but that doesn't mean much, but it means more than nothing at all. I'm using an old-fashioned mercury thermometer, so you can be sure of the accuracy. I have heard of people around here being sick in the ICU, our close friend who works as a nurse is confirmed to have it, he just says he is tired. That's the way it is, you don't see the dominoes until a whole bunch have fallen. The sick are out there. I would love to have it and get through, just so I know I don't have to worry and I can be free no matter what.

I don't show any symptoms beside a very mild sore throat. That could be anything

I am in NYC so self-quarantined, besides there is nothing to do or go anyway. The corner Bodega is open so I make a visit every few days

Unfortunately I have a team member who is Ill with it however he is young. He informs me he is past the worst of it after two weeks of barely being able to breathe

I also know someone else who is recovering too but their live-in Aunt died from it.

You are not supposed to go anywhere if you think you MAY be sick. I'm out of smokes and I'm not going to get any because of it. I have a mask(not very good) and gloves, but I'm not going anywhere. I could have someone get them or have someone bring them to me, but I'm not going to.

I don't think I am sick. No symptoms besides a sore throat which is any myriad possible causes.

Anyway I did say I only go to the Bodega every few days

For those who don't live in NY that's a Spanish form of deli/grocery store common on street corners. I need to restock supplies and not starve to death.

BTW the local Bodegas did not seem to have any type of run on their products. My local one is pretty well stocked. Even toilet paper

Well, in the U.S., the country with currently the most number of cases, barely over 100,000 people are confirmed to have it. That's one in 3,300 people. I barely know a few dozen people, and only talk to handful of them on a regular basis, so I'm not surprised at all that I don't know anyone that's confirmed to have it. I know plenty of people (myself included) that have had some kind of symptoms, but since it's currently flu and allergy season, those are probably the most likely culprits.

My tongue is starting to feel dry and gluey, I probably have it, that's great so far. I'm not staying in if I recover. I'll either be dead or a free man in 2 weeks.
