“I had this infection. It is brutal and I’m a healthy 48 years old with no underlying condition.”

A 48-year-old woman from a small town in Ohio recovered in quarantine after a scary diagnosis of COVID-19, a disease caused by a new coronavirus. He was only the second victim is known in Summit County.

Once logged into Facebook over the weekend and see the questions people how “real” this pandemic, Amy Driscoll is enough. He finally decided to share her experience with the disease.

“For all the non-believers and those who do not take this seriously, if you need [to] know someone who has been diagnosed with COVID- that 19 is good if you are reading this you know me,” Amy Driscoll began his Facebook post, which has gone viral.

Driscoll told BuzzFeed News he hopes his experience serves as a serious wake-up call for people who do not think the virus can affect them. He said the symptoms dramatically improved and was sent to the hospital in the middle of the night last week.

“It was very real,” he said. “I’m really sick and I knew something was wrong.”

Driscoll, née Brock, he was really “good” on Wednesday as he headed to work. Within a few hours, he was sluggish, running a fever, and difficulty breathing

In a Facebook posting, she wrote that she had been awakened in the middle of the night for his heart racing .; his “chest tightness” when she coughs, she wrote. He tells symptoms similar to BuzzFeed News, adding that he even joked with his colleagues at work that he has been affected by the pandemic on the previous day.

“He laughed and said, ‘Oh, it might COVID-19, and I thought,’ That’s funny. ‘ We joke, but in retrospect it was not a funny joke, “said Driscoll.

After consulting with his cousin who is a nurse, Driscoll made a quick decision to leave his family at home and pushed her to the emergency room at 4:30 am Thursday.

He met with the medical staff, who have all of their protective gear and tested immediately and admitted him to the quarantine. He will spend the next few days in complete isolation

. “Everyone who comes in really gowned – head-to-toe covered – it was really weird,” said Driscoll. “I was very isolated. … You just try to go through everything on your own.”

According to Driscoll, he received painkillers for her headache and antibiotics in case it turns into a bacterial infection. He did not receive an official diagnosis itself positively from COVID-19 until nearly midnight on Friday.

Fortunately, at that time, she said she was starting to feel better.

“next day [Saturday] the doctor came in and said, ‘We will send you home. But do not stop anywhere, went straight home. Be quarantined until we tell you when you do not,'” she recounted

Driscoll said he was just happy to be in recovery and back with his family -. until he logged into Facebook. He saw many of his Facebook friends post about not believe the severity of a pandemic and do not understand why the strict restrictions are being imposed on them.

“I see a lot of posts about how people do not believe we will go through all of these restrictions. People are like, ‘Let’s get together and have a party corona,'” he said.

“I tried to ignore it, but then a friend from high school had posted, ‘I do not know anyone with COVID-19. Is it real? I do not believe we’re going through all this.’ “

posts struck a nerve for Driscoll.

“I face this infection. It is brutal and I was a healthy 48 year old with no underlying conditions,” he wrote in his post-viral. “I’m not 100% better but I went home to rest. Please take this seriously. The people you love, their life depends on it.”

Driscoll told BuzzFeed News he was “weak” with limited ability to move around the house, but he is “healing.” After his Facebook post went viral, he also lifted by all the support she received from her local community.

“Quarantine is not fun, but I prefer to be in quarantine and know I do not expose others to it – and I’ll take it,” he added
