My Covid-19 Experience and Narrative

July 3, 2020

Everyone has a unique Covid-19 experience.

Yes, people have different symptoms and some have them much more severe than others.

And there are those who do not even have any symptoms.

Whichever category, we all have a story – whether it’s how we were affected or how a close relative or friend went through a period of illness with Covid-19.

Different symptoms mean a different Covid-19 experience…..

But the experience of each individual can also share some common aspects:

  • Degree of illness and extent of care received
  • Worry and panic about spreading the disease
  • Concern about the stigma of Covid-19
  • Worry and Panic about preventing the disease
  • What about the impact? what happens afterwards?

(Wondering about the symptoms of Covid-19?)
