A man named Drake, residing in the United States of America, was diagnosed with Covid-19 after doing an antigen test as the USA was late in implementing the strict lockdown. Hence the poor man went daily to do his job as an office clerk for a multimillion-dollar company. He tried to do his best to follow the SOPs because he understood that his newly discovered illness was not something he should take lightly.
Drake did his best to avoid the virus by wearing PPE and repeatedly washing his hands. But because of the improper handling of the situation by the USA. The poor man did not fully understand how the infection spread. Just one mistake at the office, and he contracted the disease from a colleague.
The office shut down, and about five people came in contact with the infected person. Drake is one of those five people who has also encountered this disease. He did not care about living or dying, but he was scared for the life of his wife and his 6-year-old daughter. Since there was little awareness about the coronavirus inside the states, he started searching online and found that the only way to cure it is to wait it out and let your immunity take care of it. But the most significant factor was isolating yourself so that your friends and family do not contract this disease from you.
The Steps he took
Drake valued his family’s life and started isolating himself after finding out in an antigen test that he was positive for this disease. He locked himself in the guest room and told his family it was in their best interest if they did not contact him. Had everything he needed to clean his crockery and utensils. Before sliding anything under the door, he wore gloves like he required essentials.
After a couple of days, Drake started showing symptoms of Covid-19. He was scared for his life but happy that he took the step of isolating himself. ‘I felt like a prisoner in my own home”, he said. “But it was for the benefit of my family, and I’d endure anything for them.”
After a couple of weeks, Drake finally recovered and came out of the guest room as a healthy man who felt reborn. His will and dedication helped him out of this predicament. His wife and daughter might have been fighting for their lives had he not taken the necessary steps.
Drake’s timely actions made his family safe from Covid-19 and significantly impacted how our actions under such circumstances will affect our surroundings. We must be selfless and implement social distancing religiously. Because if this disease gets out of hand (which it has already). This idiotic act of not respecting social distancing will make many patients worldwide murderers of their fellow man.
