Hello and welcome to the forums.

Do you know who did you get the virus from? What situation, got you to get the virus (work, family, friends)?
Any symptoms?

Hello!
Is getting "swabbed" for the PCR test as disturbing as they say?

Also, how would you rate the precautionary measures being taken by governmental bodies to get you guys back home safely? Anything you feel might have been overlooked?

Finally, what movies/series/video games do you plan on busying yourself with during quarantine. Need any recommendations?

Cheers, w 7amdella 3al saleme!

Hi Good luck with this! and get well soon...if bored in confinement join is in other threads!

Can you describe your airport/arrival/expatriation from Madrid to Beirut how the procedure was?

Full plane? tested in madrid or lebanon? hotel and hospital transport procedures?

Thank you for doing this!

I would like to suggest you close the thread after every 10 questions. In that way the OP wont be overwhelmed and he can answer all the questions at his own pace and also, we can follow up on all questions and make sure questions are not repeated.

Let us not forget that he is in hospital. He isnt a politician we are interviewing here.

I believe the questions I have in mind relating to Corona have been or are being asked by others.

Welcome to the forum and I wish you speedy recovery. The only question I have in mind: were you a member on this forum with another name? A simple yes or no would suffice. In other words, no need to identify yourself.

Hello @covid.ama , welcome to the Oroom and i hope we can make your confinement a little better by keeping close.

Where were you tested positive? was it upon arriving to Lebanon or in Spain?
Most of the questions on my mind have been already posted but I'll keep an eye on this thread, i'm interested in the symptoms, procedures and overall experience with the Lebanese healthcare system regarding this issue.

All the best and hopefully you'll be back on your healthy feet in no time.

The person was not already a member. They are a complete newcomer to the forums.

I just want to wish you a speedy recovery, and thanks for putting the effort to share your experience with this virus. I think all what I would ask is already covered by previous questions. Take care buddy.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I wish you recover very soon.

In addition to the precautions we are asked to make like hand-washing, sanitizing materials, face masks, social distancing etc. what difference would you make in the measures taken after you hopefully get well soon and return home?

I hope this would lift your morale, I've read in NYTimes that after recovery you will be immune for one or two years. Enough time so they find a permanent cure.

I also suggest that you pick up a novel in spare time when the condition allows, and start reading, this will distract and relieve the mind :)

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thank you for volunteering to share your experience during what must be a challenging time for you. I hope that, in turn, the forum can help keep you company while you are at the hospital; and, that you have a swift and easy recovery. All the best :)

Hope you get well soon and you don't get any severe symptoms. A small percentage get pneumonia .
You should be close to family and our nurses are some of the best.
Hope it all goes smoothly.

You're probably not washing your hands as religiously as we are, now that you're infected. Right? :cigar:

Salemtak and welcome to the forum!
