Dagy Nyce says he has first hand experience after his two aunties succumb to Covid-19, tips and sensitizes masses to observe SOPs.
For the past fortnight Uganda has seen a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases, forcing its health officials to take stern emergency measures. From 200 cases per day in April, the country is now recording over 1,000 cases per day amid a looming vaccine shortage.
At the Ministry of Health, hundreds of people line up standing, others sitting, as the line snakes its way to the vaccination tent. Last week on Friday Sevo announced the second 42-days lock down to encounter the spread of the pandemic.
Since then, various people have opened up how they have lost their loved ones. Notably media personalities like Lucky Mbabazi and Flavia Tumusiime have all had a share of Covid-19’s wrath but manage to heal.
Some like MC Kats and NTV The Beat presenter, Dagy Nyce have already lost relatives.
Today, 23rd of June Dagy Nyce has taken to his socials to share the pandemic experience after his two aunties succumbed to the virus. In his naration, Dagy also reveals that his dad managed to win the battle after spending weeks on Oxygen.
Below is his narration;
“These last four weeks have given me the bitter truth and reality of what COVID-19 is. In a space of 14 days my family lost two unties, sisters to my father but what i never shared is that he – my father was also fighting for dear life on oxygen when all of this was happening. We were advised not to share with him what had happened to his sisters at Mulago & Bugolobi medical Centre. Until he was out of the situation he was in. Today am writing to share with you that my father is off oxygen and can now support this breathing system by himself. We give thanks to the father in heaven. Thank you to Dr. Peter Kawanguzi – Bugolobi Medical Centre, Dr. Lwaabi Medipal Hospital & @ntvuganda for allowing me time to allocate my concentrate my full attention to this fight.
