During the time of his infection he was taken to hospital and was recently discharged.

The man said he survived Covid-19 as an unvaccinated person and did not wish his experience on anyone.

“I survived Covid unvaxxed but I just wanna say that I do not recommend this little experiment to anyone.”

He acknowledge that he put people at risk and said he couldn’t apologise enough for that.

He also thanked North Shore hospital staff who cared for him during his stay.

A video posted on Facebook shows him being reunited with loved ones after being discharged from hospital.
