I have known four people with HIV, but only on of whom is an LTS, who contracted COVID-19.

One said it was a thoroughly unpleasant several weeks, and unlike anything he has experienced in the past.

Three others were hospitalized, two of them wound up on ventilators.
All survived, but all three had to undergo dialysis while in the hospital.

From what they have told me, it is something I really don't want to experience for myself.

HUGS,

Mark
