Evrod Cassimy of WDIV 4 Detroit was one of the first people to get diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19) back in March, right when the pandemic was taking hold.

Cassimy, a great friend of the station, recently opened up about his experience in an interview with COVID-19 TheDoctorstv.com.

In the interview, he discusses what it was like having to quarantine with his family and when he knew he had to get to a hospital.

“It was a very dark time in my house with all of us being sick at the same time,” he says in the interview. “Nobody could sleep. I’m in pain. I can’t really be around them at first. It was really hard to get through.”

We’re so glad you’re better, Evrod!
