So, you need to take care of these things by eating very well. That is very important. It is just so that you don’t get a relapse. Your body has fought a lot, the infection… and it needs to have its down time and get the rest to fully recover.”

“Keep track of your oxygen levels, and keep an eye out for pulse oximeter. I think there are no very small details. You have to make sure you take care of yourself because you never know when things will change, ”she concluded with a warning.
