Appearing during a session on Tuesday for the National Assembly Health Committee, Dahir narrated to have spent 35 days in isolation while 8 days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The MP debunked the myths surrounding COVID-19 reiterating that the virus is real and everyone should be protected and initiate the relevant, measures to combat its spread.
“I want to admit that I suffered from Corona, I spent 42 days in hospital of which 8 were in ICU. I thank God for our employer the Parliamentary Service Commission for they paid my bill which amounted to almost Sh.4 million. I wonder how other Kenyans are managing,” Dahir said.
Yesterday, Moses Kuria made public his battle with the deadly virus while applauding medics for putting their lives on the line to cater to patients.
Taking to Facebook, Kuria disclosed that the deadly virus is real and urged Kenyans to stay safe and not lower their guard on heeding the directives issued by the Ministry of Health.
“If you are in a hospital bed- Like myself for the last 27 days here at Karen Hospital you witness first hand the amount of sacrifice they make amid vert difficult circumstances. You learn to focus more on the virus and our front line workers, and less on sideshows. We shall overcome COVID-19,” he wrote.
He added, “I really hope that beyond all the debate around Covid-19, all and sundry will not forget that Corona Virus is real. The worst thing we can do is to lower our guard! And above all let us remember our gallant front line workers- Not just doctors and nurses like but subordinate staff who put their lives in the line of danger to give care to Corona Virus patients.”
