my normal state of health even aftertwo to three weeks after testing. Symptoms of the coronavirus persisted weeks after recovery. This was announced by the CDC in the weekly report on morbidity and mortality.

From April 15 to June 25, telephone interviews were conducted with a random sample of people over 18 who were tested for COVID-19 during an outpatient visit, the CDC said.
