Nurse returns to frontline after recovering from severe COVID-19
A nurse who just recovered from a severe case of COVID-19 is returning to the frontline of healthcare workers battling the pandemic.
According to Jun Veneracion’s report on “24 Oras,” Jessa Kris Diño tested positive for COVID-19 on August 28 and stayed for 14 days at St. Elizabeth Hospital in General Santos City, where she also works.
Her mom, grandmother, aunt, uncle, and cousin later tested positive for the virus, so she worried for them and felt guilty thinking that she brought the virus home with her.
“‘Yun yung pinaka struggle doon [That is the biggest struggle]. You were thinking about your family, also you were thinking about your life. Kasi nahihirapan na talaga akong huminga noon [That time, I was really struggling to breathe],” she said.
Jessa has diabetes, but she didn’t think at first that she would have trouble dealing with COVID-19, as she was already fully vaccinated.
