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.
