A message to the first COVID-19 patient in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
I am pleased to hear that you have recovered from this dreadful illness that has taken the lives of thousands worldwide.
You, your family and friends must be quite pleased as well.
That being said, I am asking that you share your story with us, and of course, you can do so anonymously.
I, personally, would like to have details about your experience: how severe were your symptoms? How did you manage them? Which medication(s) did you use? Did you use any local remedies? How effective were they? How long did it take you to recover? How were you able to keep your family and friends safe? And most of all what advise would you give to persons going though what you through?
An account of your victory may save many lives, and will offer a feeling of hope to those who are crippled by the fear of contracting this disease.
It is not a death sentence; we know that. You know that better than most. So let us know, how did you win?
