Thanks for the information.  Good to know from a person that has gone through it.

Thanks for the first hand experience and common sense advice.    Hopefully people stop freaking out about this so much and start handling it more accordingly.

I read an article that says it is mild when it stays more in the upper respiratory and nose.

When/if it gets down into the lungs and lower respiratory is when major problems occur.

I am curious as to how long the virus can last in a host. Will it always be there in some form and how long is any incubation period. How long is one contagious. The two week deal seems to be a misnomer.

The incubation period is up to 2 weeks. As with all viruses, you are contagious as long as you are sneezing or coughing after symptoms show. So you are looking at 2 weeks plus however long you are sick.

I am guessing it can be caught again. Kind of like with the flu. Can be caught, recover, then caught again.
