My name is Gloria Seidule. I am a lawyer. This is episode 11 in my coronavirus series. Lawyers deal in facts. Fiction is make-believe. During this pandemic, here are some facts that I want to share with you in case you are still not self isolating and exposing yourself to other people.
As of late March 2020, the United States is fourth in the world for Covid-19 infections and getting worse.
We are in the escalation phase. States who have the most infections rank as follows, New York, California, New Jersey, Michigan, Florida, Louisiana, Illinois, and Massachusetts. 10% of people who test positive have to go in the hospital. We do not have enough hospital beds. Gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea or vomiting can be a symptom.
It is unknown if you can get Covid-19 more than once. The United States pharmaceutical companies are leading the charge and finding a cure or a vaccine. This is very serious. If you are sick, stay home, isolate your family from yourself. Do not go out. Stay safe out there.
