I Survived COVID and I’m still positive. 

 I thought it would be good to share my experience with the Coronavirus, people are talking about it saying its a hoax and its a tie-down for government to control us. Yes maybe the government is overreacting and the economy is taking strain because of it but it’s not easy. As a business owner to be locked up here while the business is suffering and 130 families that work for me are in a real predicament at this stage.

I tested positive for Covid-19 

I contracted the coronavirus and I am an asthma sufferer. My symptoms were not flu-like. I had body pain and back pain so server that I could hardly handle it and felt like I could no longer live. I went to the doctor and got a Voltaren injection and it seemed to help. The next day I was back at work and working. After that, however, I started to throw up. I threw up for four days straight. I felt that it was the end and I wasn’t going to make it any further. Only after the fourth consecutive day of throwing up did I generate any type of fever. I was in and out of 5 different hospitals. They didn’t have beds for me and there was no room for me to stay. Every time someone took my temperature it was 36, early 37. One night where I did break out into a fever and a sweat but the symptoms were definitely not that of a flu. I had only server body pain and was constantly puking.

After the fifth hospital and further loss of fluid, they admitted me and put me on a drip at Linmed. Each time I went to the hospital they put me on a drip, It did help and I felt better, but a couple of hours later I was back to the start of not being able to eat and having server puking.

There is no cure

When they admitted me to Linmed I had already  been tested at the previous hospital I was at and they said, yes I was positive with COVID. I feel the staff was really good and helpful. They put me on another drip and told me there is no medication for this virus, its a man-made virus and thus there is no cure. They then thinned my blood with injections into the stomach so that the virus could not clot. The drips we merely for pain and fever as well as hydration. I asked to be put on antibiotics but the doctor told me because it’s man-made there is no type of antibiotic that will work. They had wards full of COVID people. The hospitals were absolutely full to capacity. They were turning many wards into red zones. I was put in the orthopaedic ward and it was full. It is an epidemic and IT IS REAL.

A man died in front of me. 

The one guy was being admitted and while they were questioning him about if he had flu-like symptoms or if he had travelled , he looked up at them and said: I am busy dying”. They carried on asking him those questions, he then said a second time “I am busy dying” and he died in front of us then and there.

Now it could have been a heart attack where the stress of the lungs were not being able to get air. You cant breathe with the virus. They put you on oxygen as its better than a ventilator, you constantly out of breath, you can’t answer the phone or go to the loo and you are out of breath. There were people gasping for air sitting on the toilet lifting their arms to try and breathe as it attacks the lungs. I had 20% lung capacity and having asthma the symptoms were a little worse for me but I was released and sent home.

I praise the Lord that my wife and kids were not affected. I have been in isolation for the past 5 days and it is really difficult to sit at home and not be able to go to work as you really feel it  when you sit in a tiny 4 by 4 room and people bring you things to survive and you can’t do anything for yourself as you are so scared to touch anything as you don’t want anyone in your family to get it as well. I have grandchildren and I would not live with myself if they go through what I went through because of me spreading it.

We can all be ignorant of this and continue to go out, go to work or the malls but from first hand experience I tell you it is real and there is no cure, except on your knee. There is no medication or antibiotic. we only have the Lord our Saviour who carried me through to live another day.
