Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has detailed her coronavirus experiences after confirming that she tested positive on Instagram a few weeks ago.
Revealing that she and her family are now recovered, the screen diva opened up on how she contracted the viral disease on a set of a movie, noting that she was treated by some infectious decease doctors who told her that many people are infected with the virus.
The 42-year-old actress who made this known in an interview with Vangaurd further revealed that she infected her daughter and her asthmatic son but luckily her husband’s test came back negative.
She said: “I hardly fall ill and so when I left the set and started having chills the next day or so, I knew something wasn’t right. I thought it might be stress. This was on Monday, August 3. I waited till Tuesday and it got worse. I was shaking uncontrollably and my temperature was going through the roof.
My spirit told me immediately, this is not malaria or fever. I have been extremely careful and paranoid about this COVID-19 stuff. So I told hubby I needed to be tested immediately. I have a son that has Asthma!
They came to test me on Wednesday and my result came out on Thursday evening, Positive. My world crashed. I felt crazy and empty. My symptoms were high fever and chills… luckily no other. But it was so bad, they contemplated coming to evacuate me as my viral load was high and I wasn’t getting better … but God arose for me.
So they had to come test the whole family … I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son! My God showed up for me as my son is asymptotic, so positive but not sick! My daughter lost her smell and taste and had severe diarrhoea. All has stopped now, thank God.
We are all now in remission. It’s physically, spiritually and emotionally exhausting as the doctors tell you it’s a 50/50 chance. Nothing you do really saves you. You can only take the vitamins, manage the symptoms and hope your body fights.
Please this thing is real and we must come together to find the safest way to work and protect ourselves. I was one of the most careful persons you’d ever meet concerning COVID-19. Imagine if I believed because of that I couldn’t have been infected… I wish I wasn’t … but I was … I could have been going out and kept on infecting others.”
