Lawyer Donald Kipkorir tested positive for covid 19 and photos of him with an oxygen mask went viral, another confirmation to naysayers that the virus is real.
Well, the city lawyer now says that he will be discharged from Aga Khan to recuperate from home.
“I HAVE NO FEVER. I DON’T COUGH. I DON’T SNEEZE. BY THE TIME I TESTED POSITIVE, MY LUNGS HAD BEEN COMPROMISED. THE DOCTORS HAD TO WORK TO HELP MY LUNGS RECOVER, MY OXYGEN LEVELS INCREASED & TO HAVE MY BODY FIGHT THE VIRAL ATTACK. I HAVE BEEN ON COCKTAILS OF MEDICINE & OXYGEN SINCE BUT NOW WELL TO BE DISCHARGED TO RECUPERATE AT HOME.”
Kipkorir says none of his close friends whom he interacted with has tested positive for the virus.
WHILST ADMITTED HERE AT AGA KHAN UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, I GOT TO LEARN ABOUT COVID-19, NOT MUCH BUT A LITTLE. FIRST, THERE IS SO MUCH SCIENCE DOESN’T KNOW WITH CERTAINTY HOW COVID-19 IS SPREAD & WHEN IT STOPS BEING CONTAGIOUS. SINCE MY INFECTION BUT BEFORE KNOWING I WAS POSITIVE, INTERACTED WITH CLOSE FRIENDS IN THE OFFICE, RESTAURANTS, AND HOME HAVE TESTED NEGATIVE. I DON’T KNOW WHERE AND HOW I WAS INFECTED. BUT I DIDN’T INFECT ANYONE I KNOW THAT I CAME IN CONTACT WITH.
The lawyer took his social media fans back to when he started feeling the need to see a doctor after a cold chill
IN THE AFTERNOON OF NOVEMBER 2, I EXPERIENCED COLD CHILL IN MY BODY. IT IS AS THOUGH I WAS ATOP THE SWISS ALPS IN DECEMBER. I TOOK VERY HOT SHOWER, WORE TWO T-SHIRTS, SWEATER & TWO TRACK-BOTTOMS & TWO DUVETS. I BROKE NO SWEAT.
AS I HAVE NEVER BEEN ADMITTED EVEN ONCE IN HOSPITAL ALL MY LIFE, I ASSUMED THIS “WINTER CHILL” WILL GO. BUT IT DIDN’T. ON FRIDAY, I DECIDED TO VISIT MY DOCTORS AT AGA KHAN UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. THEY DID ALL TESTS ON MY BLOOD & URINE AND FOUND I WAS AS FIT AS A FIDDLE. IT IS WHEN THEY DECIDED TO TEST FOR COVID-19. I DIDN’T & I DON’T HAVE THE CLASSIC COVID-19 SYMPTOMS. I TESTED POSITIVE.
The lawyer will only be accepting WhatsApp messages and texts to limit speaking;
RESPONSIBILITY THEREFORE FOR CONTAINING THE SPREAD & TREATMENT OF COVID-19 IS PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. TO BLAME GOK FOR ITS SPREAD OR TREATMENT IS FALSEHOOD & HYPOCRISY. FOR NOW, AS I LEAVE FOR HOME TO RECUPERATE, I PLEAD WITH MY FRIENDS TO CHAT WITH ME BY TEXT & WHATSAPP ONLY TO ALLOW MY LUNGS HEAL. I WANT TO LIMIT MY SPEAKING. AND THANKS TO ALL MY FAMILY’S AND FRIENDS LOCALLY AND ABROAD FOR ALL PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES. I WILL GET BACK TO ALL. GOD BLESS.
