My work colleague has Covid-19 and has just posted a video of herself on Facebook, trying to deal with the cough, the shortness of breath and what she says is the difficulty in filling her lungs with oxygen. She looks and sounds so very ill . She is under 50 with no underlying health conditions.
She is a key worker (social worker). She has called 111 twice the last week, once for herself and once for her mother, who lives with her. She said they don't want to know because she can talk (only just)
My son is also a key worker (supermarket) and I'm even more worried about him, now I've seen how badly my work colleague is affected.
I've heard that a humidifier can ease a cough or congestion of the chest, so I am thinking about getting one, just in case my son catches it. Not that I'm likening Covid-19 to a cough or congested chest - just watching the video and it's clear it is something far more serious.
What do you think - would a humidifier do anything, or is it just a placebo?
Although we are following social distancing anyway, this has made me even more conscious of the need to follow the guidelines. I don't want to see anyone experiencing this.
