Richard Quest: I got Covid-19 two months ago. I am still discovering new areas of damage



Richard Quest: I got Covid-19 two months ago. I am still discovering new areas of damage

Like it many othersNow I realize that I am living and suffering from Covid-19’s long tail.
I get re-infected in mid-April. The onset of symptoms comes quickly. Suddenly I realized that I felt very tired and had a new cough. I was tested and the morning after I received a phone call from the medical center, I tested positive for the corona virus.

The virus is like a tornado. When it lands, it rotates throughout the body, causing chaos, confusion, coughing, causing damage to every organ it touches. Some will not survive his visit. For those who do it, when it’s gone, someone surveys the damage to the human landscape and realizes it’s far greater than previously thought. My symptoms are on the lighter side: I have never experienced difficulty breathing, or lost my senses or smell. I am tired and I always suffer from “coughing,” which has now returned.

Covid Cough is not like the normal cough you usually experience (what doctors politely call “productive cough.”) This cough is very typical. This is a dry, hoarse, wheezing cough. In my case, many were short of breath, exhaling air, followed by a long, deep, coughing expiration cough, which stood up wondering if I would fall.

I have tested negative for viruses and positive for antibodies, and my doctor said I would not return. But there are days when I feel it.

I also discovered a new area of ​​damage: I am now very awkward. I’m not the nicest person, nobody calls me graceful, but my awkwardness doesn’t make sense. If I reach for a glass, or take something from the cupboard, I will knock on it, or drop it on the floor. I have tripped over the sidewalk and flew. I fell from the furniture. It was as if that part of my brain, which unconsciously adjusted my hands and movements to the obstacles it saw, did not function.

Sometimes there is a mild sense of confusion. Micro delays in mind, doubt with a word. No one will pay attention except me.

My digestive system is strange, to say the least.

It doesn’t matter if I call it symptoms, traits, or junk – my body doesn’t feel right.

The doctors tried to convince me, saying, this would disappear, but they could not tell me when. Last week it was bad. Coughing has been with me for days, I’m tired and need to take a nap. I tripped on a camera tripod and fell on the chair! I’m worried but haven’t panicked yet. This week has felt much better.

For those who don’t have Covid yet, or witness the chaos they leave behind, once again, I encourage you, do whatever you can to avoid this tornado.

It will roar throughout the body – kill some on the way – hurt everything in its path – and then when you think “well, thank God it’s gone,” look around, the damage is spread everywhere and will be with you long after the crisis has passed.

Covid is a tornado with a very long tail.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
