    The symptoms weren’t painful. It felt like you’re normally sick, just a little bit of fever and coughing also. But of course you get scared because i was living alone and you keep hearing the bad news on the social media. I’m 25 years old
    Are you a smoker?

    I don’t know. I was washing my hands a lot and also using hand gel so 🤷‍♂️
    Hi. Glad to see you're improving and hope you will be out of quarantining soon. And sorry for your loss...

    I read your answers, and this answer is a little alarming. So you were taking all your precautions (washing hands, etc.) and still you caught it. You mentioned it might have been in the metro or bus.. .were they crowded? do you think you could have touched a handle or something and then touched your mouth/eyes? just probing to see what else people can do to stay safe(r).
    Here we started wearing a mask whenever we go out... in addition to washing hands

    Presymptotic transmission was proven to exist 4 days before you get symptoms, WHO announced it and they even doubt there might as well be some asymptotic transmission, so you can actually get it from anyone thinking they have no symptoms. Washing hands helps but when a lot of people walk around with the virus chances are they are in the air and you go through them and you get infected as well especially when you're in a bus or a metro or in crowded cities when it is hard not to walk in people's passages.
