He used the example of an Na+ ion and Cl- ion being bonded by a transfer of electrons. Even though this is technically an ionic bond, some of the negative charge from the Cl- ion is pulled toward the positive charge of the Na+ ion, and this happens in the bonding region. This is the "covalent" character of the ionic bond, where the charges of the two ions overlap in a sense. Hopefully, the attachment shows a better image of this concept.
