WATCH: 51-year Corona virus survivor, Fred Drah narrates his experience


A 51-year-old man, Fred Drah who survived Coronavirus has in a media interview narrated his experience and it’s simply teary.

According to Mr. Duah, he contracted the virus through a friend he dealt with at the port where he works.

He also noted in the interview on TV3 News that his experience has humbled and made him cherish life more.

Narrating his experience to TV3 News, below were his words:

“I work at the ports, I had a friend who came to…he brought mattresses and that friend came and we had contact. We even ate together but I could realize that he was coughing but then the mind was not there that certain thing can happen. I was okay until one faithful day. That day was 17th March 2020”

“So I went to Tema Polyclinic and my temperature was above the normal body temperature so there was some sort of suspicion. They will not even tell me anything. They took my sample. I had a call then the gentleman told me am I Fredrick Drah? And I said Yes I was the one. Then this gentleman just said through the test that they did, they realize that erhhh I’m having COVID-19 that I have tested positive”

Mr. Drah also detailed how he was the very first person admitted at the isolation center (Ga-East Hospital) and how someone who came after him died after a few days.

He also noted that he together with his family were stigmatized because of the news of him testing positive to the virus.

He hence advised the general public to be vigilant because Coronavirus is not a joke.
