TV personality, Robert Marawa has opened up to share his experience after testing positive for COVID. He disclosed a lot of things and the process he went through in the fight for his life and also advised South Africans to ignore the claims by people who say the virus is not real.
Robert made this comment in an official statement released by him on his Twitter page.
The star who has been in strict self-isolation said the symptoms started off as flu-like symptoms.
He went on to share details of how he was been treated as he said Covid is real.
Read Excerpts From His Statement Below:-
It is with great gratitude that I still find myself alive and able to address this personal matter publicly.
As a broadcaster within the media space, I wrestled with the thought of sharing this part of my journey publicly, however, I also came to realise that my reality could help educate and perhaps even save someone’s life.
I’d like to start by first thanking my family, close friends and my wonderful fans who have shown great concern since my absence from radio and social media in the past few weeks.
I was recently diagnosed positive with Covid-19 and started strict self-isolation, while not taking any medically prescribed pharmaceutical medication. What started out as the flu-like symptoms we’ve all been warned about, quickly led to fulminant debilitating inexplicable fatigue without shortness of breath on day 8 of my diagnosis.
A doctor friend advised me to get an electronic device that measures pulse and blood oxygen concentration. When oxygen concentration dropped to 92, hospital admission was arranged via an x-ray to establish lung condition.
Chest x-ray showed extensive pneumonia. On further assessments, I was transferred to the ICU for High Care, where I stayed for 1 week. I was observed in the general ward for a further 2 days before I was discharged to go home.
The medical professionals working tirelessly to revive my health concluded that the extensive level of Covid-19 pneumonia that I had developed could have resulted in a far worse experience had I not sought medical intervention as soon as I did. Thus it’s extremely important that one seeks medical attention as soon as possible instead of isolating at home while the symptoms continue to intensify.
