Oh @Ronald so sorry to hear that you have caught Covid and the system is sort of kicking in.
@Alice_BloodCancerUK has given you a brilliant response that I cannot better.
All I shall say is I hope you symptoms subside soon, look after yourself and be kind to yourself, I suspect this will take you a while to fully recover from.
Please let us know how you get on.
