Singapore – A touching story of a father and his three-year-old son who had to be isolated together after contracting Covid-19 has been shared online through 12 sets of TikTok videos, and counts, as they accompany them during their quarantine isolation.

The boy’s father Dovanson Quah uploads and shares the series of updates on TikTok during his 40s.

Quah said he received a text message saying someone tested positive for Covid-19 at his son’s preschool on Saturday, November 20. The next day, Quah’s wife immediately had a rapid home antigen test (ART) for their son, Aziel, who showed signs of weakness and fever.

The results arrived after a few hours, and Quah rushed to the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to put his Aziel through a swab test. During this time, his wife then disinfected and cleaned Aziel’s room.

The family then decided to make the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom a seclusion space in their home for Aziel and her father.

In the first video update, before locking the master bedroom door, Aziel said “Goodbye, I want to hug mom.”

Quah replied, “No hugs,” as he feared the virus would spread to their home.

Aziel and her mother gently exchanged “I love you” as she carried her little brother, standing with an aide outside the master bedroom, both wearing face masks.
