If you feel like you can’t breathe or feel like you are going to pass out, then you need to sit and relax and maybe go to the doctor if it ends up getting really bad. Paola de Simone was a 46 woman teaching on zoom and she couldn’t breathe so she collapsed. The students were asking what her address was so they could send an ambulance but she was unable to respond. When the students asked for her address the second time, she then responded “I can’t”.

She had a cough that would not go away, but then she continued to teach with that symptom. She was a wife, and mother. She wrote that her husband who works in medical therapy and emergencies got a call and was so tired from working.
