New Jersey resident Melanie Montano is still suffering from COVID-19 symptoms 100 days after her diagnosis. Montano has been documenting her harrowing journey since March. She finally tested negative for coronavirus last month, but the symptoms, including sweating and fevers, have lingered on. She was also just diagnosed with pneumonia and still has no sense of smell or taste. To prove it, she volunteered to do a hot sauce taste test. “I don’t taste anything,” Montano said.
