What I think to myself is that maybe coronavirus is intelligently targeting people who deserve it. Really hate puppies? Fark off, sociopath.

A month ago, there was a conspiracy theory that black people couldn't catch COVID-19. You'll never guess which cohort now has the highest morbidity and mortality rate of COVID-19.

Well that was 20 seconds of my life wasted.

Crying can make your eyes hurt.
Stress headaches can make your eyes hurt.
Very dry (like enclosed indoor) air can make your eyes hurt.
Dehydration (lack of water or excess of alcohol) can make your eyes hurt.
Smoke (pot or cigs) can make your eyes hurt.

Just off the top of my head. All better explanations than a respiratory infection frequently affecting eyeballs.

There are some truly strange and underreported symptoms. A lot of people report sudden loss of bowel control. Like shiatting the bed and couch sudden. The pink rimmed eyes and bleeding eyes and then there's the mental confusion and fog. It's just fevers and cough. The survivors all seem to say, "It's the weirdest sickness I've ever had."

A coworker of my brother had Covid-19 after going to New Orleans.  He was in terrible shape, even coughing up blood, and as it cleared he got "pink eye".  The classical pink eye is a bacterial infection that effects the white part of the eyeball.  His doctor explained that his pinkness was caused by inflamed/bloody nasal tissues leaking around the eye.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
maybe coronavirus is intelligently targeting people who deserve it.

I'm just recovering from the Covid virus - one of the symptoms was eye pain.

Now - i've suffered eye pain before for various reasons, (monitor eyestrain, stress headaches etc.) but these were absolutely nothing like the anything i've encountered before. It wasn't very noticeable during the day, but when i closed my eyes and relaxed, i could could feel it.

It felt like a hand gripping my eyeballs from behind and lightly squeezing them.

Even notice the numbness, tingling and exhaustion you might have an arm/leg muscles when working out? It also felt like that with the eyeball as they rotated in my socket.

However, the eye issue was altogether very minor compared to everything else.

I also had the loss of sense of smell (still hasn't returned fully yet) along with weaker taste.

The chills combined with the sweats were disconcerting, and the fever dreams were mindblowing but i actually can't remember them once i woke up.

I had an extremely mild reaction to it, and i'd judge it as a 2.0 on my flu-o-meter (im very prone to the normal influenzea virus, and actually had a dose about 2 months prior over Christmas)

My eyes are red and I've been staring off into space but it's not from the corona virus.

I listed stuff off the top of my pointy head, but after a quick bit of reading, sore eyes can indeed be associated with (amongst other things) fever and infections like flu and the common cold. It makes sense that it could be a symptom of COVID-19.

I formally retract my snark and thank you for your post. Learning is fun!

(fever is a consistent symptom of many cases)

Except, y'know, for all the asymptomatic cases or the ones so mild the person won't realize they have the ronas. The quantity of cases with that result are a percentage we may never know. Yet those are the all-important cases that determine whether this thing tapers off into obscurity, or has a second boom after people start coming out of isolation.

So...people are trying to see patterns where there really are none. What does this have to do with puppies?

/Yes,there are other symptoms other than fever and cough
//No, just because you have eye pain doesn't mean you have covid

Did the eye pain feel like the kind you get with a sinus headache (right at rear of eye) ?

it wasn't actual pain - more of a constant pressure, noticable when i swivelled them and something that felt like muscle fatigue - that suggests my eyes were possibly swollen, but not to the point of a constant pain.

Very peculiar - never experienced anything like it before. I had all the other symptoms, but couldn't actually get tested to confirm. Plus i caught it from someone who visited an badly affected area, and his friends all came down with it too.

Wait... so you didnt actully get tested, how can you say with certainty that you had it??  And dont give me the "I had all the symptoms so I self diagnosed" bullcrap.  Unless you're confirmed, you're pretty much spreading misinformation too.
