Dear family and friends, I got tested for covid-19 on Monday and the result came back today and I am positive. So my family and I will be quarantining ourselves for the next 14 days. I had a slight fever, congestion, body ache and fatigue on the first two days. Besides that I am blessed that my whole family is doing well. We are really in this together and we will get over this.
“I had a slight fever, congestion, body ache, and fatigue on the first two days,” the Myanmar mixed martial arts superstar wrote on Instagram.
