Once you're over it, you'll be like a super hero...

He was bitten by the Covid-19 spider, now he can walk amongst society (and climb walls).

All the best mate.

Fingers crossed it passes soon; what about a pencil and pad to draw all those new bits you'll need to make when you are back on your feet?
