”I survived the Covid!! Since the 23rd of December when I tested positive it didn’t relent, my temperature was constantly btw 38 to 39.8 till New year eve when I could no longer breathe without choking and coughing.

Don’t ever get tired of masking up, washing and sanitising your hands, it took the intervention of Jesus for me to survive this!! I’m still in Kenya.”
