He fell ill for some weeks prior to when he was taken to the hospital, and was treating for malaria as its most likely the first thought that comes to ones mind. But by the time he had a rethink that it could be something else, his lungs was already eighty percent (80%) damaged. He had difficulty in breathing, eating and had no control over anything as he was confined to one position and was going in and out of consciousness. It was indeed a near death experience.
He's glad to be back home, although, he's still recovering and placed on oxygen and other medications as his lungs would take some couple of months to heal.
He however spoke on the high cost of treating Covid-19 as he solicits for that government should invest in affordable treatment as more people are likely to die due to their inability to afford the treatment .
Special thanks to his family, friends and health workers who were incredibly supportive in taking care of him. He saw the face of God in the midst of the whole event and it is one he will never forget.
