“Before the test result came in, I had no inkling that l was going to test positive. This was because, despite the demands of the office I occupy, l have been careful since COVlD-19 crept into our world I took the test just like others and didn’t nurse any fear. I was asymptomatic, I still am, and I remain fearless.
