    I am convinced (have yet to get an antibody test) that I had this early on – early as in mid December. Took a cruise (my first, oh joy) out of Miami with 4,000 passengers, 2,000 crew. Real international makeup. Great boat, food, drink, etc, four days in I feel off, flu-like (I had the shot), but not drag-down dead like the flu. Cough, weird fever arcs. Grabbed some 800mg Mexican ibuprofen, a variety of cough medicine, but the rest of the cruise was a real fog. On landing in Miami I called my doc for a Zpack – he ran through symptoms, said he would Rx, but “probably wouldn’t work due to it sounding viral. Symptoms persisted for 2 week with peaks and valleys, then I had an office visit, He listened to my chest “your lungs are crystal clear” , ran bloods, and poked around. Initial EKG was “funny” and he redid it, He said he could come up with nothing to Dx me with, besides “some bug”. I was still feeling sick Jan 6 per a journal entry, but it eventually faded. I am convinced I still feel residual effects to my lungs and heart, minor, but there.

    Several people around me caught it. Most minor symptoms, lover’s daughter flu-like for weeks. Lover’s sister, immune compromised (cancer, oxygen) was very sick – would up in isolation in local hospital for a week. No real Dx, they said some combination of bronchitis and pneumonia. She pulled through.

    Here in NY it seems many have had it, most with minimal symptoms, and very few with something worse than a bad flu,
