Doctor: How to Reduce Your Vulnerability to Coronavirus — When Sleeping
What you may not know about coronavirus — the disease that has reached pandemic proportions — is that one of the times you are most vulnerable to contracting it is while you’re sleeping. Here is how this can happen, and what you can do about it.
The key is to minimize the virus burden around and inside your face before you go to sleep.
Coronavirus infects cells below the voice box, in the airways and deep in the lungs, unlike flu viruses which start with your nose and throat. Other than via tiny particles inhaled in air, coronavirus reaches those cells via fluid in the nose or throat that sneaks past your voice box (this is called aspiration) and slides down your windpipe, or trachea.
Studies have shown that at least half of normal people — young, middle-aged, elderly — aspirate at night during sleep. By the end of a week, probably we all have. After taking a sleeping pill or a couple beers or shots — and sleeping more deeply — the chance of aspiration is even higher. And as we age, ordinary swallowing often becomes less well coordinated…

What To Do If You Think You Have Coronavirus
The symptoms to look out for that require immediate medical assistance.
Coronavirus can present as a common cold in mild cases, with a low-grade fever, chills, headache, fatigue and malaise. It’s important not to ignore these mild symptoms, and it could take anywhere from 2 to 14 days for an infected person to actually exhibit mild symptoms, with the average being about five days.
“Most cases of COVID-19 will be mild and resolve on their own similar to the flu,” Anegawa said. “It’s best to stay home and out of public. However, if you have any severe symptoms such as a very high fever, severe cough or shortness of breath, it would be wise to seek in-person care.”

“My biggest things are I’m feeling really short of breath. I’m feeling exhausted but I’m definitely getting healthier.”
Merck is in isolation with her husband until at least March 22 or until she’s asymptomatic. Then, she has to register negative on coronavirus tests 24 hours apart before she’s cleared to be in public again…
