A young man took the bold step to document and share his journey since contracting the dreaded coronavirus.
After battling with Covid-19 for nearly two weeks, he recently started regaining strength and shared an informative social media post.
Via his Twitter handle, Lekan (@tirimisiyu2013) said,
"I'm currently in ICU fighting Covid-19. Been sick for almost 2 weeks and almost died. Its been a truly humbling experience and I don't think my perspective on life will ever be the same. To all my NFTA metro friends yes i have Covid-19 and I got it driving those contaminated buses."

He went on to add that he wore protective gear while working as a bus driver, but that wasnt enough to protect him.
He then urged others to value their health and respect the lockdown rules:
"Exposure and what good is a paycheck if you arent alive to spend it? My fight isnt over but i felt well enough to post this. Pray 4 me and my mom Barbara Jones and all the sick people. This is real. Stay indoors!"
