As an elite competitive triathlete, César Villalba, 34, of Los Angeles knows his body. So, though he can perform acceptably on a pulmonary test months after his initial bout with COVID-19, thats anything but acceptable for the professional designer who is used to racing around the world.
I can do that with 60 percent of my lung capacity, Villalba says with the heavy sigh of a man who would really just like to be better.
Villalba was never officially diagnosed with COVID-19, because he got sick before the pandemic hit full steam. I had pneumonia, sore throat, fever for a week, and persistent coughing.
After a couple of months, he thought he was better. Then on a plane trip to see his family in Spain, he got shortness of breath and his hands went numb. He went to the hospital when he landed, but they could find nothing wrong.
Villalba, who uses a Whoop strap to track his training, continued to see weird changes in his heart rate variability and recovery heart rate that didnt match what he was doing in training. And the shortness of breath would not go away. I was struggling to have a conversation over a coffee.
His doctor eventually prescribed asthma medication. But it didnt help. With no explanation, they ran blood scans and found that his blood clotting test showed a high risk for clottinganother symptom that can be linked to the coronavirus.
At that point, all signs pointed to COVID, Villalba says. The doctors are finding a lot of people with similar cases and in similar situations to me. They dont know exactly how to treat them.

This guy is having problems. That means I should hide in my basement for the next decade.
“This guy is having problems. That means I should hide in my basement for the next decade.”
I didn’t click through but this excerpt doesn’t say he was actually found to have had Covid-19.
Maybe they found it later?
Eh, nobody said that. Do what you want, just as I will do what I want. The article just points out that some cases still can be serious or linger on, that’s all.
Thats when Covid strikes truckers.
“Then on a plane trip to see his family in Spain, he got shortness of breath and his hands went numb. He went to the hospital when he landed, but they could find nothing wrong.”
they found nothing wrong because all he did was hyperventilate. i did the same thing during labor & delivery
“Rhinoviruses and CORONAVIRUSES cause the majority of common colds and play a part in more serious respiratory illnesses that lead to increased morbidity and mortality. Patients who are infants or elderly, have asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or are immunosuppressed have increased frequency of rhinovirus-related respiratory complications. Newer diagnostic tests such as reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) have greatly expanded our understanding of the importance of these respiratory viruses. Although there are no currently approved antiviral agents for clinical use, our increased understanding of the virus-host interaction should lead to new intervention strategies.”
It means the deep state keeps the plandemic going
It means you have respiratory symptoms and body aches for maybe two months instead of two weeks.
This sort of lingering on effect in seemingly healthy people occurs sometimes with other usually moderate-at-worst respiratory diseases (which may well be other coronaviruses.)
I am fairly healthy, can and do sometimes spend entire afternoons (with some breaks) pushing a manual push-mower as much as 10 miles in 1 long afternoon. (I worked out what distance was actually involved in push mowing my Mom’s entire yard!) There might be some raking, too. This in my mid-60’s. I never smoked and do not have any chronic lung problems.
Yet, I had a cold almost 2 months ago (my entire family had the bug in varying degrees, tested for COVID-19 and came up negative), and I am STILL battling a sort of residual chest congestion and cough, with some shortness of breath on occasion. Every 2-3 years I get a particularly noteworthy case of this — I assume it’s due to one particular virus I am susceptible to and my immunity wears off.
I’d guess that if I do get it, COVID-19 might well give me a very hard time in this manner, despite my generally good health and endurance.
And then it’s gone.
But for the vast majority, this virus causes no symptoms or it’s just this year’s cold.
So this guy hasn’t been tested but he is sure it’s the wuhan. News that isn’t
You may have nutritional deficiencies due to a malabsorption syndrome like celiac disease. At least that was the reason why I got severe colds for many years. My health improved dramatically after I went gluten free and began taking nutritional supplements.
I think it means trucker from NY with the virus and loaded for Southern California with full load of mail in ballots.
Usually it means youre a middle aged white woman who also has chronic fatigue hasnt tested positive for COVID and cant wait to vote for joe Biden.
34 years old? You can’t train-out age, dude.
No, more like three to five weeks.
Two months is extremely rare.
Every so often, the cold/flu season has a bug that lasts longer and bites harder. It’s always been the pattern.
