Flying doctor MD, Ola Brown narrates her experience after contracting COVID19

The founder of Flying Doctors Nigeria, Ola Orekunrin, has taken to her Twitter page to share her experience after she contracted the novel coronavirus.

She wrote:

”This year I was almost kidnapped on the way to a healthcare project in the notorious Birnin Gwari Local Government area.

I also had COVID19. Despite being fit with no pre-existing conditions, I stopped breathing (a medical emergency) and had to be on oxygen for a week.

Months later, I still have symptoms of Long COVID and am still recovering gradually. One of our oldest board members died. He was a chartered accountant who taught me a lot about portfolio management and hedging. 2020, was a tough year with both highs and lows.”
