Brent is a COVID-19 survivor and he has a strong message for those who still have not gotten the message of just how debilitating and damaging the virus can be on the human body. He has literally seen people die in hospital bed next to him saw nurses and doctors break down in tears everytime they lost a patient to the deadly virus.
