COVID Patient Pens Viral Thread About How It Can Cause Long-Term Disability (25 Tweets)

Dani Oliver is a writer who has a Twitter thread going viral about their experience with COVID-19. It has been brutal and going on for months. The thread is a serious warning about the consequences of catching the virus, besides death. People seem willing to risk that, but they might not be willing to risk this.

“Hey, so, I got #Covid19 in March,” they wrote. “I’ve been sick for over 3 months w/ severe respiratory, cardiovascular & neurological symptoms. I still have a fever. I’ve been incapacitated for nearly a season of my life. It’s not enough to not die. You don’t want to live thru this, either.”

According to Oliver, what has happened to them isn’t a personal phenomenon. Many people have seen their health wrecked by the virus, or felt like they were experiencing the symptoms for months and months. They also allege that there are many symptoms that don’t seem to be registered by the CDC, or openly acknowledged by many health officials:


The array of painful symptoms that Oliver seems to be experiencing sound far more serious than people realize. While many have heard about the high death rate, it seems to be widely misunderstood that recovery from the virus is nothing like the flu:

The whole experience has left Oliver in bad shape not just physically, but mentally. And they want everyone to know that this is happening—and wear their damn masks:

Many others shared that they experienced similar health disasters after COVID:

Many people seem willing to risk death, which is crazy enough for me. But maybe if they understood they might also live, with painful, and limiting health conditions. There isn’t enough known about how the virus works and what recovery times are. Take the warnings seriously.
