I'm 69, she's 72. She has Asthma, I have no pre-existing conditions except being overweight. For me it was a mild sore throat for about 36 hours. I took a few throat lozenges and I've been fine ever since. My wife developed pneumonia and spent three days in the hospital on IV antibiotics then spent the next three weeks at home on oxygen. She's fully recovered now, just had a follow up scan on her lungs and that looked good. We both caught it the same time from the same person, our great granddaughter. I have never stopped wearing a mask indoors in any public place and will continue to do so.
