“At the start of this pandemic, I was anti-vax,” he explained straight away in a TikTok video posted five days ago.
The Quebecer says his wife became pregnant during the pandemic, but they still decided that she would not be vaccinated.
“The inevitable happened. We both caught the COVID together, pretty solid thank you”, he confided on the social network. “I couldn’t believe my eyes (…) We were really messed up.”
His wife unfortunately ended up in intensive care at Saint-Eustache hospital “She’s been there for five days. It’s still going well,” he said.
“I admit that having known I should have been vaccinated. (…) the appointments are already made and I am just waiting for that”, he declared, adding that by catching COVID-19 “it passes close to death”.
Thanks to his testimony, he hopes to change the minds of as many people as possible and invites all unvaccinated people to protect against the virus.
