He narrated how he discovered he had the deadly virus after treating malaria, and how it got treated. Before he knew it was covid 19, it was too late and 80% of his lungs had damaged.

Uche said he was on oxygen for days and could not eat or breathe. He had severe chest pain, couldn't walk and blacked out a lot of times. He felt he was dying and waking up. For the first time in his life, he had no control over anything. In the hospital where he was receiving treatment, he was charged N350000 per day, totaling 6million for 12 days he spent there.

Upon recovery, he was moved to First Cardiology Hospital, Ikoyi for Heart and Lungs Rehabilitation.

He's fully cured now from this deadly virus, could walk a little although it will take months for his lungs to recover fully. He's also still receiving oxygen and medication back at home.

Indeed, he saw the face of God.

He lamented that government should invest in providing efficient treatment for this virus because those that are vaccinated are also contracting the virus. The last line of defense is investing in affordable health care services.
