"It was really out
of my expectations
to be diagnosed
as being infected
by the virus,”
as told by a Covid-19 survivor
There was no knowledge of a positive close contact, no recent travel history interstate nor internationally and he abided to every Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) set by the Malaysian government, Kevin* ticked all the boxes when it comes to being low at risk for Covid-19.
So, when he had symptoms of the flu, he did not think much of it. However, as it progressed, he made the decision to go for a Covid-19 swab test and three days later, he received a call from the district health office that informed him that he was tested positive for Covid-19. Kevin shares with us on this recent ordeal and how his decision to never take things for granted spared his loved ones from being infected.
