I have been tracking the pandemic in Iowa since the first three positives were identified and communicated to the public on 3/8/2020.
Many of my family and friends have been negatively affected by COVID-19. My junior high coach succumbed to COVID-19 in Iowa City, Iowa.
I have Common Variable Immune Deficiency and Reactive Airway Disease. I infuse with Hizentra IgG twice weekly on Mondays, a blood product which is dispersed into my subcutaneous fat layer over the course of 3 hours. I also have many other comorbidities that put me at high-risk for severe disease with COVID-19, as well as high-risk for long COVID. My husband and I, along with our son, went into immediate voluntary isolation.
