Contracting Covid-19 was a “life-changing” occasion that gave a Western Cape male nurse a various “point of view” on life.
Leonard Maschilla contracted Covid-19 while he became part of a group that was evaluating more than 95, 000 Drakenstein neighborhood members, the provincial federal government stated in a media declaration.
Maschilla’s positive results did not come as a surprise to him as he experienced serious flu signs.
” It was like hell on earth,” recalled Maschilla, an HIV/Aids, sexually-transmitted infections and TB co-ordinator.
He was confessed to health center within three days when his face, hands and feet began to turn blue and he struggled to breathe.
” You thought Covid-19 was something far away in China, however it rapidly ended up being really individual,” he stated.
While in health center physicians found that Maschilla’s lungs appeared as those of somebody with TB.
” This truly is my second possibility,” Maschilla stated.
