New evidence may help answer the question of how long Covid-19 has really been in Minnesota.

The first official Covid-19 case in Minnesota was on March 7th, but a newly published article and interview from Keyc leads us to believe it was here well before that date.

The article titled: Martin County couple recovers from COVID-19, shares story of hope is about a couple that has just recovered from Covid-19. The wife was very ill and spent a number of days in the hospital. It is believe she got the virus from her husband.

Checkout this snippet of the article:

Annette has an autoimmune disease that affects her lungs and also has vocal cord issues which makes breathing difficult. Eventually, the symptoms subsided as days went by. Meanwhile, Larry found out he might have already recovered from COVID-19, all while mostly asymptomatic.

“Back the end of February, first of March, I went through a period of fatigue and light-headedness but just kind of self-medicated with coffee, so I just kind of worked through it and didn’t really know but then after Annette tested positive they wanted me tested and discussed some of the symptoms and it was like, oh my, I maybe did have that a couple of weeks ago,” said Larry.

The couple, both in their late 50′s, didn’t travel out of the country recently and isn’t exactly sure where they may have contracted the disease. They want people to know just how drastically different COVID-19 symptoms can be, even in the same household.

That would mean Covid-19 was community spreading in Southern Minnesota (the couple is from Martin County) prior to the states first official case.  Which makes you wonder how long the virus has actually been here?  The virus could have been spreading since early February or even in January.  Which would put a giant dent into the official story put out by the media and the state that now is the time to panic. 

It appears we are ruining our economy and people’s lives fighting a virus that was already here and spreading prior to Governor Walz’s authoritarian actions to stop it.  Though the virus is deadly to some we would be better off concentrating on protecting the most at risk and voluntarily self quarantining like we would with influenza.  We as Americans have never bowed to tyrants or diseases before and we shouldn’t start now.
