Study hints Covid-19 may have been in the US as early as December

Researchers believe they have found evidence that the novel coronavirus may have been circulating in the US as early as late December, about a month before the current timeline from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows


My grandfather was extremely ill and so was my father and they both were traveling via airplane from NYC to California and this was in January into February. My father had to go to the hospital he was so sick and he NEVER goes to the hospital. He hates them. But then my 6 year old son got severely ill. They could not find the exact cause he tested negative for everything (at the time there was no COVID testing this was in March) so they just said he must have some sort of respiratory infection and he later developed pneumonia. Shortly after the lockdowns began. I know for a fact all 3 of them had it. I’ve never seen any of them that sick. It was terrible.

A lot of my family had symptoms in New Hampshire in January, sickest that they've been in years. Incredibly sick the first few days, then it remained dormant for 3 weeks and with an abnormally dry cough. My 87 year old grandmother tested negative for influenza when she had whatever this was.

I've heard a lot of cases that sound believable, even dating back to November. The only thing that's puzzling though... given how contagious it is, it should've spread around the whole US sooner. My only guess is that it evolved to be more contagious, which viruses typically do.

Telling from my experience:
I went back to my home country to visit my family after years staying in the US to study. When I transited in Hong Kong on 12/15/19, I was really shocked that 100% airport staffs wore masks and gloves and they checked passengers' temperature one by one.
After going back to my home country and renewing my visa, around 1 week from the flight, I got terribly sick and it was my worst experience ever. Constant high fevers even with double doses of medicines. I went to ER room twice, and they diagnosed that I got "virus infection". Got many symptoms that were later said to be related to COVID such as shortness of breaths, muscles and joints pains, cannot breathe, etc.

Surprisingly I did not spread the virus to any of my family members who got close contacts to me, including my parents who are more than 70 years old with underlying conditions (diabetes and smoking) as wellas hundreds of people surrounding me.

If it was COVID infection, I doubt that it was the very first generation when it was harder to spread to others. But my point is, Hong Kong airport knew about something serious that dangerously spread in December 15, while the entire world knew nearly nothing.
Some of my friends working in Healthcare industry claimed that many guys knew about the virus since Nov but they did not reveal it. Not sure if it is right or wrong.

This is nothing new. I had a relatively who was extremely sick from the week of Thanksgiving until mid-December. Went to the ER twice mainly because couldn't breathe. Was told it wasn't the flu. Sent home both times. On the 2nd time, was told it probably was a bad case of pneumonia based on lung xrays. I kept saying something wasn't right. She was still weak by the end of December. That week, I typed in flu-like symptoms, virus, etc. Any word I could think of that would explain why she was still somewhat not well as medicines were changed. I came across the news about Chinese doctors stumbling across an illness that resemble the flu but wasn't. These doctors were in talks before the end on December yet were told to remain hush. I followed that story into January. Read whatever this thing was had already started showing up in Europe. Fast forward, so when POTUS said in mid-January, China had it under control, I was like "not so; if I'm reading on regular news (not so much from USA) about this virus spreading, he gets intel, so he has to have more information than I do." That info he had was never shared with Congress or the US citizens. I knew all along, so yes, it was here probably as early as November.

I believe I had COVID May 2019. I felt symptoms 2 days after Cinco De Mayo (I was out celebrating with locals and friends downtown in my city). Pretty much I had a terrible cough, constant fever, hacking up mucus, chills, body aches, and shortness of breath. It was so bad, the urgent care physician prescribed me an inhaler, and I don’t have asthma! They ran labs and put me on many different antibiotics including a z-pack and nothing worked. My diagnosis was inconclusive after going to urgent care and an internal medicine doctor. Therefore, they diagnosed me with viral bronchitis. I battled with this for 2 whole months. It was terrible. I literally was always short of breath, hot, and coughing. The only thing that helped was drinking tea and rest. I also had to stop going to the gym. I still lost 30 lbs! I truly think I had COVID!

Allow me to show you a snippet of how history sees the CDC and how the CDC’s version of “discovery” is a lot like a lot of colonialist-type thinking. Things exist often before they are discovered. They just aren’t “acknowledged.” This excerpt is taken from their own website: Kawasaki disease (KD), also known as Kawasaki syndrome, is an acute febrile illness of unknown cause that primarily affects children younger than 5 years of age. The disease was first described in Japan by Tomisaku Kawasaki in 1967, and the first cases outside of Japan were reported in Hawaii in 1976. .

My husband and I both think we had it back in December. We both ended up at urgent care after weeks of being sick and going through bottles of OTC cough and flu meds with no relief. We were told not the flu, not strep, and not pneumonia but we were both treated for some sort of respiratory illness they weren’t sure what it was. I have asthma and chronic bronchitis and I’ve never felt that sick and weak in my life. It was awful. Thought I was going to die. I coughed until I thought I would crack a rib. It took 8 weeks to be well enough to get around again. Our 9 year old had mild cough but not like us. As soon as they started talking about COVID in February I was like yup....sounds like what we had. We both travel a lot for work, and could have picked it up any number of places around the US.
