COVID Cases Increasing

COVID cases Ohio have been spiking up to an all time high and being the most deadly it has ever been since the start of the outbreak back in March. We have discovered that COVID affects everyone differently and they think it depends on the person’s genetics. The symptoms of COVID have evolved to a point where people can’t tell if you’re sick with a virus or just a cold which makes it harder to determine if you actually have COVID or not.

When the outbreak started back in March, the worst that it got in one day was a 1,400 person infection and the line flattened from there, coming November 27th more than 17 thousand people were infected in one day, and just yesterday more than 7 thousand people were infected.

We have also discovered that COVID affects people very differently with Trump only being hospitalized for 3 days and making a full recovery, other people aren’t so lucky, people are being put on their deathbeds because of the virus and some of them are even young and healthy adults.

The symptoms of COVID have evolved so much that it’s starting to get hard to determine what your sick with, at this rate it doesn’t matter if you have COVID or the common cold if you were to show any symptoms that match COVID you would have to go into quarantine for 2 weeks. Symptoms can match that of: Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. If you show any of these symptoms you are recommended to seek medical attention immediately.
