Covid 19 is miserable. I was sick for over 2 months and admitted to the ICU for 2 weeks. And unfortunately since I contracted it back in early April my immunity has dissipated so I’m now reliant on others being mask protocol compliant to help keep me safe again (I’m a recent cancer treatment patient). My sense of taste has yet to fully return and I’m still working with a respiratory therapist. And I’m 40. Please remember, wearing a mask isn’t just about you.

People may think they can handle getting sick and that they are tougher than Covid and maybe so. But how much is going to the hospital twice going to cost this family? Even with insurance. If you get admitted into the hospital even with insurance it can be thousands and thousands of dollars. If the virus doesn’t scare people maybe thousands of dollars in medical bills will.

Rest of the world has brought the curve down. Reopened businesses. Reopened schools. But kept social distancing and wearing a mask in public a priority to keep everyone safe and the economy going. I'm in Singapore where masks are MANDATORY in public and I've never seen a person die in public from wearing a mask. Oh guess what? Nobody died from wearing a mask around the world either.

And then we have america, where the stupids are still against the use of the mask because it infringes their right to breathe!! omg help them!! poor lil whiny cry babies still crying that it's a democrat hoax. WTF?? are you guys going to keep relying on conspiracy theories & neglect science? Oh wait.. you have donald trump and his trumPETS are even stupider than he is. GG

Covid is worse than the flu. Period. You’re foolish if you believe it’s just the flu. You just don’t know if you will be asymptomatic or die from it. If wearing a mask on public for the next 6 weeks will flatten the curve, just wear the damn mask. It’s not rocket science.

My mom's coworker has passed away today, after 3 weeks in the hospital. The first time I met him in person is when my dad dropped me and my brother off to his house to help him prepare for a party while my dad cuts the grass in his property in cottonwood. Me and my brother helped set up tables and chairs in the patio and then uprooted the weeds and cleared the chopped branches. After the hours went by, out dad came to pick us up, and the man, (his name is moe), paid us 20 dollars each, and then we left not knowing in that day is the first and last time we'll ever see him in person. As months passed, my mom told me that moe contracted COVID-19 and is staying at the hospital, but after 3 weeks in care moe has passed away after his family said their final goodbyes to him. Everything felt surreal for a moment as I was thinking back when we first met and knowing today that he died, and with mom mourning his death is the day that I'll never forget.

Rest In Peace - Moe
The man I knew for one day
And great family man from England.

And people still believe this is all a hoax.

When these schools reopen, sure, most kids will be fine. Most will live. Most will develop mild-moderate symptoms at the worst.

But some will not have a good response to this virus. Some will suffer. Some will die.
All due to this viris.

I can't imagine the thought of losing my child because I let them go back to a virus playground...

The virus is real, I know I wouldn't gamble my child's life on luck.

Sadly, no matter how many stories are shown, no matter how much people plead, mo matter the personal losses some.of us have suffered, people will still say it is fake, a hoax, and now that our president endorsed a video full of lies from a woman who apparently said something to the effect of having sex with demons causes gynecological problems, it gives them more "power" to call us sheep and put more lives at risk.
I just don't know what else to say it is so exasperating

This made me tearful. This is a 16 year old girl, appears to be healthy infected by Covid. I can't even imagine those with underlying health conditions/those at risk that experienced similar symptoms that she had. I wish her well!

I've been social distancing since March, and I've been going stir crazy. This video has reminded me that if this can happen to a teenager, it can happen to adults too. Thank you to Kaydee and her family for reminding us all to stay home and wear a mask. Take care Kaydee, I'm glad that you are feeling better!

I have heard so many young people say "I already got COVID" .... so what, doesn't mean you can't get it again. Doesn't mean you can't infect others. You aren't immune
