Business Insider: A healthy woman had no typical coronavirus symptoms. Then she suffered paralysis, lost her ability to speak, and almost died of COVID-19.. “When Rebecca Wrixon was admitted to the emergency department in mid-April with numbness in her right arm and foot, it didn’t occur to her that she might have COVID-19. She thought she was having a stroke. Her doctors at University Hospital Southampton, in England, thought the same, especially as she began to struggle with speech and vision shortly after her admission. But tests revealed no sign of stroke and Wrixon’s condition continued to deteriorate. The doctors ordered another test — a throat swab for COVID-19, which was becoming standard practice in hospitals since the pandemic was declared. Wrixon tested positive for the virus.”
