In March I got sick. But the swabs were negative. I was ill for two weeks, with a temperature of 37.2, had a dry cough, terrible weakness, bronchitis. When we started testing for antibodies,
it turned out that I had already formed an immune system against coronavirus. Now every seven days we do swabs for virus and test blood for antibodies. Recent tests revealed fifteen infected colleagues, but all asymptomatic. Now they are quarantined.
I didn't panic. We understand that we are always at risk,
and this is not necessarily coronavirus, there is also hepatitis, tuberculosis, and HIV.
Everyone complains about self-isolation, I complain that I don't have a day off. I think that numbers will start declining in the mid-June. We already have less patients, in the last days we had 18-20 patients per doctor, and on average 45-50 per day for all doctors. Previously there were 40 patients per doctor and 120-130 per day. On the positive side, I have gained a lot of experience, which helps my personal development and improves speed of response in emergency cases. On the negative side, I'm simply tired. Although my life has not changed much: I continue to learn Spanish, prepare for the entrance exams for Spanish residence (I plan to live and work there), and study anatomical pathology.
