The popular singer Peter Okoye has gone to his Instagram page to tell how he and his family tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The singer shared a video in which he revealed that two of his household workers were also infected with the deadly virus.
He shared his experiences, he said;
“In the last three weeks I was sick and most people didn’t even know what was wrong with me. I kept it to myself. It was three weeks of hell for me and my family.
I had COVID19 for about three weeks and it happened to me.
I was sick and my test was positive.
The reason why I came out to say it is because I will encourage many people to overcome all this social distance, to get used to disinfect their hands, to disinfect the environment, to wear the face mask and all that.
It was hell for this family in this house. Not just for me. Even for two of my maids.
A week later, my daughter was infected with the virus. It was said that when she got infected the doctor insisted that she had to be isolated in her own room by herself, but my wife did something very brave. She said no.
I was sick and in self-isolation in my guest room. I could not even see my sick daughter and I was so sick. I felt so bad because I felt like I was the one who actually brought the virus into the house. It was so bad that I had to call her on the video to check on her.
The next day my wife did something very brave. She took our daughter out of her room, held her down and brought her into the master bedroom, called me and started crying. I asked her what happened and she said I couldn’t live this girl alone. I’d rather be infected and be with her.
Five or six days later, my daughter was declared negative. When she was declared negative, we knew it wouldn’t end there. The next day Lola became positive. It was hell, but we had a bad experience.
I just want to tell everyone that this COVID19 is real. Don’t take it for granted.
I am happy to announce that my wife, me, our daughter and two of our domestic workers are all negative now”.
