    These patients need to be given one of the best health care facilities if possible identifying the best hospitals so the patient remains out of fear and regains health back, many of them lose the battle coz of a negative mind.

    Goes to show how dangerous the pandemic is.
    Asymptotic covid cases are more dangerous as they become spreaders unknowingly.
    Looks like we are all in Lockdown for a long haul 🙂
