It took three days for Alixson to walk from Kinabalu, Sabah State, to his village in the City of Marudu.Action reckoned by Alixson is not without reason.

Even so, Alixon still worried that he would transmit the corona virus.

I still asked to go to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for a more thorough examination,” Alixson was quoted as saying by the Straits Times.After examining the sample at the hospital, the doctor informed him that he could do an independent quarantine at home. So, Alixson does not have to wait for the results of the Covid-19 inspection at quarantine facilities that have been prepared by the government.

I decided to walk far to Marudu City because I was accustomed to walking miles away from hunting and farming,” he said.
Before going on a trip, Alixon had lunch and bought two bottles of water at the hospital. When walking not too far from Kota Kinabalu, he passed the cemetery and was visited by a dog.The dog apparently followed Alixson’s trip. He also let the dog come along and gave him the name Hachiko.”I thought the dog would go halfway but he stayed along the way, which is why I decided to adopt Hachiko,” Alixon said.
