They came to test me on Wednesday and my result came out on Thursday evening Positive.
“My world crashed. I felt crazy and empty.
“My symptoms were high fever and chills, luckily no other.

“I went into isolation immediately. We got my result but my daughter started feeling funny.
“So they had to come test the whole family.
“I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son!
“Fortunately, my God showed up for me as my son is asymptotic, so positive but not sick.
“However, my daughter lost her sense of smell and taste and had severe diarrhea but all has stopped now, thank God.”
