Warren man with coronavirus shares story and video from hospital bed

Posted: Mar 14, 2020 / 10:45 AM EDT

WARREN (WJW)-  A 55-year-old Warren man is starting to recover from the coronavirus and says he  now  wants to share his identity and story  in an effort to help relieve fear.

Kevin Harris , a father of four,  is currently at Mercy Health St. Joseph Warren Hospital.

“At first I felt like I was going to die but now it’s slowly getting better,” Harris said.

Harris posted a video on his social media page Friday night  showing himself in his hospital bed and a hospital worker next to his bed wearing protective gear.

“I had to wait and make sure I wasn’t going to die before I was on Facebook,” Harris says on the video.

He says he is very grateful to the hospital staff that has helped him.

Harris said he has not recently traveled outside of the country.

“When I started feeling sick I went to the doctor’s near my home and they said I had the flu,” Harris said.

He said a few days later he started coughing and that cough kept getting worse.

He said on Sunday another friend came to take him to the hospital.

“I had very limited contact with anyone,” Harris said.

He wanted to stress to others to stay home if they are sick so they don’t spread any illness and if their symptoms don’t get better in a couple of days to go to the hospital.

“This is not your typical flu,” Harris said.

State Senator Sean O'Brien says the woman, who is in her 50s, has not traveled out of the country and did not have contact with Kevin Harris.
