Comedian Sergio Verduzco, better known as “Platanito” spoke about his recovery after having contracted COVID-19 and about the consequences that the disease has left him, this after being infected by two of his collaborators who have recovered satisfactorily.
It was in an interview for the show program Sun rises, that the clown stated that after two of his collaborators were tested for the disease, Platanito decided to do the same, But a day later they confirmed that he had tested positive, so he decided to go to the hospital because he was beginning to feel the discomfort. It was kept there for 15 days, the time that COVID-19 incubation lasts.
The 15 days were awful, but four days were terrible and I thought I would not get rid of her. I couldn’t even walk, it was awesome to go to the bathroom. I got tired, I was exhausted. Your body is working so hard it seems like you are exercising all the time so all the time you are very tired, very exhausted
And it is that during the 15 days that the disease lasts, he felt “terrible” pain in the joints and general discomfort, especially the last five days. The comedian too He said that fortunately no one in his family was infected thanks and that it was only he who presented symptoms:
I’m going to take the test and, the next day, I test positive. So I said, ‘Blessed God I left the show.’ There are no more infected at work or at home. NEITHER my wife nor the family nor the girl who helps us at home. Blessed God they discharged me, although it does not mean that I am 100 percent, I still have some headaches and fatigue, especially fatigue
The actor said that he still has many sequelae from the virus, including chronic fatigue, characteristic of the disease and some headaches, in addition to saying that sometimes he is still exhausted when he speaks and feels that he cannot breathe. However, the comedian, true to his nature, took it with a lot of humor and said: “It’s my turn and it does exist, don’t listen to Paty Navidad.”
Another aspect that Sergio Verduzco took up was that he had to sell various personal things, among which some brand watches stand out, this in order to support his employees and co-workers because due to the paralysis to which he had to face the entire art media industry. Platanito stated that this problem has taught him to value other things more than the purely material:
I have some things of value that I no longer use and that I will not use again, because this also leaves a lot of learning, that sometimes material things are not important at all. Then I started to get rid of watches and well imagine right now with the insecurity that exists in the country right now, to go out with a brand watch of those fine ones because I better sold them and with that wool because I distributed it with that we can already carry a little of food for our families and to try to lead life
