Patient's journey

The man shared how one of his primary symptoms early on was severe exhaustion, shivers and lack of appetite. "The cough started in the afternoon. Not a bad cough, and not productive. But just there every now and again to remind me that my lungs were also not happy," he said further. 

He added that over the course of the next few days, his cough and appetite started to improve; however there was a persistence of fatigue in his body. His tweet for Day 5 read, "Still pretty tired. No headaches any more. Appetite up to 1/2 or 2/3 of normal. Still no desire to leave the bed/sofa, let alone the house." He advised people that the only way to protect yourself and your loved ones was to self-isolate.
