Dr. Anonymous told ProperGaanda about his first-hand experience at treating covid-19 patients as a staff member at National Health Service in UK.

He writes,

Being on front line of NHS (National Health Service) staff. Using all PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment) I dealt with confirmed and suspected covid-19 patients. I am now in self isolation. He further goes on to explain what are the symptoms of a silent carrier that he himself faced.

Day 1: Warm to touch, no cough, no fever, mild fatigue.

Day 3: woke up with mild rhinorrhea and sore throat which settled over the day.

Day 4: Sudden loss of sense of smell and taste.

Day 5: Diarrhea

He further emphasises,”These symptoms are suggestive that you may be a silent career of the virus. Given you don’t have fever or cough. Still you can be a career of the virus. STAY HOME, KEEP YOURSELF AND OTHERS SAFE!!”
