She revealed she first developed a sore throat and cough on January 2. However, the home Covid tests were negative. “On the 2nd of January when I developed cough n sore throat, I got myself tested on the coviself kit knowing that I have had a history of laryngitis and the cough n sore throat could be from that and further on for confirmation I went on to take 2 more tests the following day. All 3 tests showed negative, along with me my mom’s test on coviself also showed negative but I didn’t feel too good because this time the sore throat was so bad that I felt like I had a sand paper in my throat,” she said.

Mom and me have been facing congestion, cough. cold severe body and headaches and fluctuating fever with occasional shivers. We are isolated and under medical care. I would like to request those who have come in contact with us in the past week to please get yourself tested,” she concluded the note.
