Have you ever seen a family, someone my kovid na m kill yesterday am you know for family? You can't, dem say dem na em me and you listen. Sickness Day also scares us.

“Whether they are human or not, let’s take a picture of at least one person who was killed by COVID-19 and we will find the family of such a person.
