I was diagnosed with Coronavirus on February 1st. I had the symptoms for two months, even though I am still experiencing some side effects. This is how I felt. I felt pressure on my lungs. I felt like my head was going to explode. I felt as if I was mummified in disease as the virus took over my body. I just wanted to sleep as I sweat with fever seeping it out of me trying to fight it off.
