My family recovered from covid19 – Peter Okoye
Singer , Peter Okoye, has narrated how he and his wife , daughter as well as two domestic staff tested positive for COVID – 19 and recovered after a few weeks.
Making the revelation in a video posted via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Okoye said , ” For the past three weeks, I have been ill and most people didn ’ t even know what was wrong with me . I kept it to myself. It has been three weeks of hell for me and my family.
“ I had COVID 19 for about three weeks and it happened to me.
“ I was sick and I tested positive.
“ It ’ s been hell for this family in this house. Not just me. Even two of my domestic staff.
“ After a week, my daughter caught the virus as well. It was sad that when she caught it, the doctor insisted that she has to be self – isolated in her own room but my wife did something very courageous . She said no .
“ I was sick and I was being self -isolated in my guest room . I couldn’ t even see my sick daughter and I was feeling so bad . I felt so bad because I felt that I am the one who actually brought the virus to the house. It was so bad that I had to be calling her on video, checking on her.
“ The next day , my wife did something very courageous . She picked our daughter from her room , held her and took her to the master bedroom and she called me and she started crying . I asked her what happened and she said I cannot live this girl alone . I would rather be infected and be with her.
“ Five or six days later , my daughter was pronounced negative . When she was pronounced negative , we knew it wasn ’ t going to end there . The next day, Lola became positive. It has been hell but we had a bad experience.
“ The reason I came out to say this is to encourage a lot of people concerning this whole social distancing, getting used to sanitising your hands , disinfecting your environment , wearing your face mask , and all that.
“ I just want to tell everybody that this COVID 19 is real . Don’ t take it for granted.
“ I am happy to announce that my wife , myself , our daughter , and two of our domestic staff all of us are now negative . ”
