She feels she has reached the midpoint of recovery but wishes to inform other infected persons not to give up hope. A woman who contracted the virus appealed to all to heed the directives of the authorities. She recounted to Television Mata how she had heeded all the precautions but because of circumstances beyond her control she had contracted the virus anyway.
She said she had been exposed to an element of which she was not aware, she had not travelled or done anything that was undue. She felt the symptoms and began to have doubts. She did not leave home, remained isolation even from the rest of the family for their own safety.
She said she has not recovered and still has symptoms and was experiencing new development daily. At first they were worse and they are now reduced. However, she agreed one experiences a great tiredness, has a feeling of being without energy and being at a crossroads.
She appealed to all to heed the directives given and that everything has to be taken in a serious manner and all directives should be heeded. She praised all the medical care being given by doctors and many others.
She also said she had found the cooperation and sympathy of many others and many had shown tolerance and great support. Many persons had taken gifts of chocolates, flowers and food to her door. She said she had not done anything to put anybody else in danger. Nobody wanted this virus and nobody wanted this to be spread to others. She encouraged others to remain strong so as the situation to be overcome.
