I found this thread yesterday since I hadn't been on Cruise Critic since January. We were on Vision of the Seas from Jan. 25 - Feb. 15th. Then we were on the Summit Feb. 15-March 7th.
During our last week of Feb. 29 th my husband came down with the runny nose, sore throat, and cough. But he slept it off and it didn't develop into anything serious. The day before we left the ship I came down with the same symptoms. The Sunday we arrived home I had a fever and felt horrible. I had ER visits on March 9 and March 13. Tests were run on the 9th and it was diagnosed as the rhino virus - the common cold. No antibiotics given because it was viral. My symptoms continued to get worse and on the 13th I was diagnosed with pneumonia and the
COVID-19 test was administered. I was given two antibiotics the z pack and Augmentin, an inhaler, and cough medicine. I was very ill for about 10 more days. My breathing was impaired and I ran a fever for days. I could only have a phone visit with my doctor because my test didn't come back. She extended the Augmentin. Days went by and I had no test results. So I was on the phone being frustrated as well as being sick. I finally got my results on Wednesday, March 25th. The results were negative. But I feel like Kdex my results are not accurate.
As I read this thread I feel vindicated seeing that other people did test positive after sailing on the Summit. I feel Celebrity should have to state that it did occur. I appreciate the reports from Canada and the other people who posted.
I'm feeling better but I'm still gaining my strength back. I still tire easily and nap often. I'm not going out because of my weakened immune system.
Thank you for reading and my wish and prayer for everyone that reads this is that you stay healthy.
