A former anti-vaxxer now suffering through a Covid infection says he wishes he had taken the vaccine.

John Koutsimanis says he was put off getting the jab after reading misinformation about the vaccine's safety on social media.

Koutsimanis believed Covid was like the flu - but has changed his mind since catching the Delta strain almost two weeks ago.

He told Heather du Plessis-Allan every time he felt he was about to get better - he would get worse.

“Just very dark long days and nights and with pain and feeling hot and cold and then more pain and thinking you’re sweating it out and then it just doesn't go away.”
