My mother got infected. For some days it looked like she did not have to go to hospital, but then we had to call the doctor. They said it's most likely getting worse and we have to prepare a decision what action has to be taken when that happens (i.e. do we want to send her to intensive carem put her in a coma etc, problem is that most likely would have caused damage to her brain oder other parts of the body). So we said no intensive care etc.
I'm quite happy that she managed to go through this and will be leaving hospital soon.
