Singapore — A touching story of a father and his three-year-old son who had to be isolated together after contracting Covid-19 was shared online through 12 TikTok video series, and counting, as they accompany each other through their quarantine isolation. 

Dovanson Quah, the father of the boy, uploads, and shares the series of updates on TikTok while undergoing their quarantine.

His first post on their isolation journey titled “When your 3 year old kena covid” was uploaded last Monday (Nov 22) and has now reached over 250,000 views!

Quah said that he received a text message that someone tested positive for Covid-19 at his son’s preschool on Saturday (Nov 20). The following day, Quah’s wife immediately took an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at home for their son, Aziel, who showed some signs of weakness and fever. 

The results came in after a few hours and Quah rushed to Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to take his Aziel for a swab test. Meanwhile, his wife then disinfected and cleaned Aziel’s room. 

The family then decided to make the master bedroom with an attached bathroom an isolation area in their home for Aziel and his dad.

In the first video update, before locking the master bedroom’s door, Aziel said “Bye, I want to hug mummy”.

Quah responded, “No hugging,” as he feared the virus would spread to their household.

Aziel and his mother softly exchanged “I love you” while she was carrying his little baby sibling, standing with a helper outside the master bedroom, both wearing face masks.

The father and son first showed them organising their clothes by separating the dirty ones from the clean ones. Some essentials prepared by Aziel’s mother were also seen in the video such as art materials, N95 face masks, wet tissues, sanitisers, and some Pokémon stickers for her son. 

The little boy also showed to their viewers his diapers, some educational books and some of his shirts and pants, but his father instantly reminded him with a laugh, “You’re not going out.”

The boy looked happy despite contracting the virus. His father continued to document their situation while eating dinner and before going to bed, as he read out a bedtime story for him.

At the end of their video, before going to sleep, Quah asked Aziel, “Aziel, do you think I will have Covid-19 too?”. To that, Aziel replied with no hesitation, “Yes!” as his father just laughed out loud. 

On Tuesday (Nov 23), Quah took the Antigen Rapid Test (ART) and discovered he too tested positive for Covid. Both father and son were then transferred to a hotel to continue their quarantine over there.

Quah and Aziel, despite the odds, continue living their lives in isolation but with the spirit of overcoming the virus in the end.

With the video updates shared by Quah, many are hoping that the two will recover soon and will be able to go home back to their family once again.
