COVID 19: There is evidence that the infection can result in more severe disease in the second week of illness. In one report, the median time from illness onset to hospital admission was 9 days. But the fact that most of your symptoms have improved is very positive. It can take quite a while for some people to have complete resolution of all symptoms.
