Two years after having COVID-19, Eva Day still struggles to breathe.

“The breathing is a really big thing and it’s not that it’s going to get better," said Day, 63. "Even if (doctors) do surgery, they can’t promise that it’s going to get better."

It's been three years since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic. There have been over 12,000 deaths in Connecticut

For Day, besides her struggles to breathe, she also has trouble speaking, which can make it difficult to run her business, Design by Day LLC, where she works as a contractor to help remodel houses and properties. 

Still, the Greenwich native-turned-Stamford resident said she considers herself “so lucky” to have survived.

Day said her symptoms began in early January 2021, when she started to feel "lousy," and had a mild fever. A few days later, she was coughing up blood and went to Stamford Hospital, where she told staff that she thought she had COVID.
