- A health official in the US, Cherie Antionette, has said people do not fully recover from coronavirus
- Cherie said that officials are not entirely truthful with patients concerning the virus
- The American nurse said Covid-19 is the worst crisis she has witnessed in her eight-year career
An American nurse with the Twitter name Cherie Antoinette has said that in her eight years in the medical profession, coronavirus “is the worst disease” she has come across.
She said that whenever they tell patients they have recovered, they do not inform them of the health complications they may battle with in the future as a result of the disease.
Cherie hinted that health issues that may happen after could be a lung transplant, massive heart attack, or stroke.
The nurse said that another possible issue they do not tell recovered patients is that they may have to depend on oxygen to live the rest of their life.
She said that the virus is “designed to kill” as it a highly intelligent disease that attacks everything it goes for.
Cherie added that there may be no resources to combat the disease “if we don’t continue to flatten the curve”.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a graduate of the University of Lagos, Abiodun Abraham, made a great input towards the fight against coronavirus in the country.
The creative man constructed a disinfectant tunnel that cleans any residue of bacteria and viruses off whoever passes through it.
This kind of machine will go a long way in ensuring personal hygiene in public places as life eases back to normal and activities become full-blown.
In other news, New Zealand has reported two new cases of Covid-19 bringing a three and a half week run of no new infections to an end.
Health authorities confirmed that both new patients had recently arrived from the United Kingdom:
“The ministry can confirm today two new cases of COVID-19 in New Zealand related to the border as a result of recent travel from the UK. Both cases are connected."
It was gathered that Covid-19 restrictions in the country had been relaxed to Level 1 after what was believed to be the last patient recovered from the virus.
New Zealand's borders are strictly open to returning citizens and their families. The exceptions are for business-related purposes and compassionate ground, with a compulsory two-week quarantine for anyone entering the country.
