You aren't tracking loss of smell. I've had this, along with my husband and lots of people here on Reddit. I think it's important to add it to your survey - https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/03/24/coronavirus-symptoms-loss-smell-taste/2897385001/

The survey also doesn't collect symptoms people have had. I'd like to contribute, but I'm mostly feeling fine now, after experiencing symptoms for 10 days, so I feel like contributing my data for today isn't helpful. Maybe a section that just collects all symptoms from the past, and how long the person has been experiencing symptoms?

Cool. One more thing I noted was that you're asking if people have been tested, but not if they've asked to be tested and denied. We have a group of 5 people who all most definitely have it, one of us is quite ill, but they won't test any of us without needing hospitalization. It seems like this is quite prevalent around the country and could be good data.

It was a campaign slogan and term of endearment. http://jacobsmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Dwight-D.-Eisenhower.jpg

Just want to chime in here that I agree with public-service. People in general often don't see the whole story of their experience and view it through a pre-conceived filter. You are saying that it is because OP is a woman that public-service is questioning their view of their own experience, whereas public-service is saying that they would do that for a person of either gender. You're assumption that one must be doing something because of their gender is unfair to the person you're making the assumption of. And asking someone to not question something that they would normally question of either gender, because someone is female, is sexist.
