Connor Reed, a 25-year-old expat from Llandudno in North Wales, has worked in a school in Wuhan, China, for almost a year. In November he became the first British man to catch the coronavirus...Day 9: Even the kitten hanging around my apartment seems to be feeling under the weather. It isnt its usual lively self, and when I put down food it doesnt want to eat...Day 11: Suddenly, Im feeling better, physically at least. The flu has lifted. But the poor kitten has died. I dont know whether it had what Ive got, or whether cats can even get human flu.

This is GREAT NEWS.
He got better.
Wonder what the “Flu kills XXX,XXX/year” crowd will say?
He got better.
But I dont want to get on the cart!
There was a story about a dog getting it ; this seems to be jumping between species
I’m wondering how people die from this- Do they drown because of fluid in the lungs? Suffocate slowly- agonizingly? I read that it destroys air sacks i nthe lungs, and can leave survivors with damaged lungs- but what woudl be the actual dying process of this flu?
breath or breathe?
This story is making me nervous because I’ve had same symptoms since Sunday.
A 25-year old took OVER THREE WEEKS to get better...
Great news, but a very, very cautionary tale...
Only after he was turned into a newt
Please get yourself checked right away.
Well, this is a far cry from “It was just like a regular cold” I’ve read from other patients. Not encouraging. Though, I’m wondering if it would’ve been less severe for him if he’d sought medical help earlier.
Coronavirus patient on Laura tonight and said his case was not all that bad. Kind of like a cold.
Yup thanks now on top list
So now we have the hong kong dog that was confirmed as infected, and now a cat.
The dog didn’t have symptoms the cat died.
I’m reading that there are no available tests yet.
If I feel like I’m relapsing in the next few days I’ll go to an emergency room.
