Evrod Cassimy Coronavirus
On March 24, 2020 WDIV-TV announced that Evrod had tested positive for the COVID-19. In a story posted on Channel 4’s website, Cassimy offered advice to viewers.
“Take this very seriously because I would not want anybody to go through what I’ve gone through. I took it as seriously as most people are and still got it. I’m hurting and I am going to be OK.”
While speaking to Nick Monacelli on the phone he explained that he had coronavirus. He said that on March 17, he left work and texted his wife that he wasn’t feeling well and later took a nap. He said he felt fatigued but did not have typical coronavirus symptoms.
He said that he woke up that afternoon in pain and the next day was “excruciating pain.” He said his limbs felt as if they were made of wood and he couldn’t even roll over in bed.
He said he tried to arrange a visit with the doctor, but at the time the doctor wasn’t seeing sick patients. He was diagnosed over the phone with a virus or the flu and told he didn’t need to come in and get tested for the coronavirus because his symptoms weren’t consistent with those caused by the virus.
“I remember finally getting up one day to go get medicine and collapsing on the stairs and just sobbing because my body would not allow me to move without excruciating pain.”
He said the medicine he was given for the pain led to vomiting and on Tuesday he checked himself to hospital and was diagnosed with the coronavirus.
He said he had no idea where he got the virus from as he had not traveled and WDIV studio is filled with hand sanitizers and disinfecting sprays and he used them in addition to washing his hands regularly.
“I am confused. “I haven’t traveled. I never had a fever. I never had a cough. My breathing’s always been fine. It’s just a lot of aches and pains, and it’s the worst pains and aches that I’ve ever had in my entire life.”
Evrod Cassimy Recovers From COVID-19

“I’m coronavirus free! I am fully recovered from COVID-19! I’m screaming that with a huge smile on my face as I think back to the last two weeks I endured. I’m sitting in my office at home, sipping a cappuccino from my favorite mug this morning. It’s a glorious feeling.”
He however added that he was suffering from survivor’s guilt as other people are dying of the virus yet he is happy he had made full recovery.
“…there is a whole lot of guilt that comes with that statement — survivor’s guilt. How can I be so happy when people are dying from this nasty virus? I just learned today that someone I know passed away from it, and many others I know are fighting it in the hospital or at home.”
