Peter Busch Coronavirus
On Monday, July 20, 2020, Busch tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Other than two appearances on NBC-2 from his quarantine room, Busch has yet to return to work, because he continues to test positive. He tested again on August 4.
“I felt like a headache,” Busch said of his first symptoms. “I didn’t think too much of it at the time. I felt it. I just didn’t think, ‘That’s an obvious symptom of the coronavirus.’
“So anyway, I went to work the next day. It was the same. Nothing intense, by no means. But it was still there. I felt some fatigue.
I had my sense of smell and taste. I checked myself for a fever. There was no fever. I didn’t think too much of it.”
I have tested positive for COVID-19. Dull headache for a few days then last night I woke up with sweats and chills so I went for test. No fever. No loss of taste/smell. Not sure how I got it. Wear your mask. You might have it too but if you wear a mask less likely to spread it. pic.twitter.com/OF1iO1hVCw
