Fact check: Could your December cough actually have been coronavirus? Experts say more research is needed
A handful of widely circulated Facebook posts have asserted that people in the United States likely contracted the coronavirus as early as last fall.
“Who got sick in November or December and it lasted 10 to 14 days, with the worst cough that wouldn’t go away?” the posts say. “If you can answer, yes, then you probably had the coronavirus. There were no tests and the flu test would come back negative anyway. They called it a severe upper respiratory infection.”
