Recently, Nollywood actress Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde took to social media to inform her fans and followers that she contracted the deadly coronavirus disease and she has been in isolation.
The star actress has also revealed how she contracted the virus. She took to the official Instagram of the Actor Guild of Nigeria to disclose where she was infected with the virus.
She stated that despite the fact that she is a creful person, she still contracted the disease and it was on a movie set.
In her letter to other actors and actresses, Omotola noted that the doctor treating her said many actors are infected and are now receiving treatment.
Omotola also stated that many actors who have contracted the disease think that it is just malaria, while others who have tested might not come out publicly to talk about it.
The mother of three pleaded with her colleagues to ensure that they carry out a proper coronavirus test. According to her, actors are the most vulnerable as they can’t use a nose mask at work.
“Well, I got this on a Set. A Movie set. The doctor treating me says many of us are now infected and receiving treatment. Unfortunately, many don’t test and only think they have malaria, and others who test might not come out publicly.
“I plead with us all to test. I’ve only Now found out MAJORITY already have had or have COVID. Testing helps you get properly treated and helps others around you. Dear colleagues, as you know as actors, we are most vulnerable as we can’t wear masks while working.”
