I believe I had Covid in April of 2019. I had the “classic” symptoms and ended up in the hospital on O2 via mask. At the time, I was living in Queens, NY in a community and building peopled primarily by Chinese nationals. Lots of people were getting sick and it was assumed to be the flu. I got tested for flu and it came up negative. My lung x-rays showed the crushed glass look, and I was questioned repeatedly whether I vaped, specifically, vaped marijuana. Was I exposed to someone who vaped? No, and no. For my diagnosis, they said “par-influenza,” meaning a flu like virus of unknown variety.
