NYC man & woman BOTH came down with coronavirus after their first date

"Fern Ballou" (2020-08-03)


One New York City couple had less of a meet-cute and more of a meet-sick last month when they went out on a first date — and shortly after, both developed symptoms of coronavirus

Nick Crawford, 23, told But in this case, it wasn't just the virus that was infectious: Despite one possibly infecting the other, Nick and the woman liked each other so much that they've continued to date, and even met up several times a week while quarantining. 

How they met: Nick Crawford, 23, said he and an unidentified woman went out for the first time on March 7, and within days, both were experiencing flu-like symptomsNick, a web designer, said that he and the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, matched on Hinge and started chatting before making a plan to meet on March 7.  Hopping around: Nick, a web designer, said that he and the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, matched on Hinge and then went to several bars'At that point, coronavirus wasn't even a real threat. It didn't feel real yet,' Nick said.There had, in fact, already been cases in the US, and experts warned that it would spread quickly. However, the President was still calling the virus a 'hoax' at that time, and social distancing protocol had yet to have been adopted int he US.It was also still more than a week before New York closed bars and restaurants, so Nick and the woman had no trouble finding a place to go out. The pair went to several bars in Brooklyn that night, and even met up with friends. Shortly after they went out, Nick began to feel flu-like symptoms. He visited an urgent care clinic and tested negative for the flu, but doctors wouldn't give him a COVID-19 test, telling him that there weren't enough.  RELATED ARTICLES

Hiding away: Nick couldn't get a COVID-19 test, but a doctor told him he probably had it and should self-isolateMeanwhile, his date also experienced flu-life symptoms, too. She has taken a test but is still awaiting results.But a friend they met up with that night did test positive for COVID-19, seemingly confirming that the virus is the source of their illness, while also suggesting that they both contracted the coronavirus during that first meeting. 'I guess at one of the bars we went to, both of us ended up contracting what we would later find out is COVID-19,' Crawford said.   That's not necessarily the case, though — either Nick or his date may have already contracted the virus before the date, but remained asymptomatic, and given it to the other.Still, while Nick didn't actually get tested, his doctor said he probably had COVID-19, and urging him to self-isolate.  What self-isolation? The couple apparently hit it off, though, and have continued to see each other 'We have spent a lot of time together since then, quarantining together,' he added to MarketWatch, indicating that they've met up two or three times a week Even if he did get it from his date, Nick said there are no hard feelings.

We both had a really fun time together on our first date,' he said.In fact, the pair are still seeing each other, and Nick tweeted on Thursday: 'Looks like I caught more than just feelings during this pandemic.' 'We have spent a lot of time together since then, quarantining together,' he added to MarketWatch, indicating that they've met up two or three times a week while supposedly self-isolating.He thinks they may have a future together, too. 'I'd probably tell my grandkids the story of how we met,' he said.
