Kevin Harris, 55, and father of four is currently at Mercy Health-St. Joseph Warren Hospital in Warren, Ohio, due to his severe coronavirus symptoms.
Although after a few weeks of feeling at his worst, Harris is starting to recover from the coronavirus and says he now wants to share his identity and story to help relieve fear.
On Sunday, Harris admitted he had tested positive for the coronavirus Wednesday, although he hadn’t been anywhere or around anyone. “At first, I felt like I was going to die, but now it’s slowly getting better,” Harris said. He told the Fox 8 I-Team that Friday, he finally was able to sleep through the night.
The problem is he is lucky. He got into a hospital. If the health system gets overwhelmed, then more people could die because they can’t get into a hospital. I never saw this as a hoax. Someone real close to me, a special friend, had symptoms back in December, and she made it through.
It’s not the flu, but your #1 thought should be to stay away from crowds, wash your hands, and if your sick, stay in your home and call the required number so they will be able to get some tests out to you.
