    Volunteered to help out at a place in OCONUS.

    And was very busy doing RNA extraction kits on virus samples and running PCR last week on live COVID19 patient samples.
    Took all the precautions but now I have tell tale symptoms of CORVID19.

    Hopefully its just a normal cold as i am blood group A, but that may not be a realistic hope.

    In any event this may be a chance to finally lose some weight ;)

    The only upside to getting Covid 19 is that you may be immune to reinfection. With most viruses that's the case. Hopefully so with this one.

    Good luck.

    Individuals with a Blood Group A+ or A - are more than twice as likely to suffer severe complication and death from CORVID19 as all other Blood Groups.

    This does not affect your risk to catch it .
    Just your severity if you do catch it.

    I lost about 80% of it.
    But I have a stuffy nose... and when i have a stuffy nose I always lose that..
    So i call it inconclusive on this symptom
