Disappointed to see that a lot of people are still shrugging off COVID-19 as just another “cold” or hoax, and think that even if they get it, they’ll just go asymptomatic or have flu-like symptoms at worse.
So hear this:
Influential music artist Brad Jordan is 49 years old, a COVID-19 survivor, and will now go on dialysis four times a week, three hours each time, for the rest of his life.
Basically, he’s going to spend twelve hours every week getting salt and wastewater pumped out of his kidneys right up until the day he dies.
Even those who are young, healthy, have no underlying conditions, and have survived COVID-19 may come out with permanent lung damage, suffer from heart and kidney failure, and experience traumatic Post-Intensive Care syndrome.
If you get Coronavirus, you may never fully recover. It’s better to never get it in the first place.
Houston rapper Scarface is urging everyone to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously after he tested positive for COVID-19.
The rapper, whose real name is Brad Jordan, opened up to fellow Geto Boys member Willie D about his condition, detailing how he grappled with a number of symptoms—including pneumonia and kidney failure—before testing positive for the virus.
“This whole three weeks have been an ordeal,” Jordan said. “It’s the craziest sh-t I have ever done and seen in my life. I’ve been to the point where I just felt like I was just gonna die.”
The rapper described being unable to breathe and continuously vomiting. Things were made worse when he had to be tested a second time for coronavirus after his first test was misplaced.
