Damn, that's a scary experience to read! I'm in that age bracket, have no (known) co-morbidities, healthy & fit so I'd think I'd fend off covid-19 quite well. Perhaps not...
Sounds like he was quite unlucky to aquire a secondary infection that made things worse. Staph is a nasty bug.

My question is why the heck would the housekeeper, sick with flue and weak, decide to go visit them. Makes no sense.

We discussed earlier how the tenderpreneurs were using COVID-19 to feed properly. I give you, invoices for door to door awareness.

You know it's got to be bad if an EC politician wants it looked into.

Someone greased the wrong palms.

So I've been feeling fluish, heavy chest and a cough that's intermittentand chesty (probably a single cough every 15 minutes) , nose slightly runny from time to time and occasional sneezing.

Should I get tested?

Why did they wait so long to put him in the prone position?
Don't they have Google?
good question.
he would have been under the care of critical care physicians.
perhaps go along and offer your googled expertise

No need, it seems they learnt the lucrative hard way by experimenting on this poor guy

Eastern Cape Premier Oscar Mabuyane has announced that committees will be set up in the province's Covid-19 hotspots in an attempt to slow the high infection rate.
Why did they not think of committees before?? Things could have been so much different!!!

As long as said committee is only 50 people, anymore and you'll get CoVID any less, non knows
