Nollywood actress Okotola Jolade-Ekeinde and her children have finally tested negative to the dreaded coronavirus.
The movie star took to her Instagram page on August 30, 2020 to share the good news. She was full of praises to God for speedy recovery for her and her children who got infected.
“Grateful! 🙏🏽 I am grateful to God Almighty the Lord of lords for all He has done for my family and I. He is truly a dependable Friend if you trust in Him. I’ll also like to thank you all for your love, prayers, calls, messages, posts, and thoughts. All truly appreciated,” she wrote.
“My kids and I are fine and COVID free now, and I do not take the experience for granted at all. If you still don’t believe this virus is real, I pray you don’t experience it to believe.”
“If you ever feel ill during this pandemic, pls know there’s nothing to fear or be ashamed of…you’re not alone. Pls get TESTED immediately, it could save your life. Many have had covid and treated it as fever, malaria, etc and luckily they’ve been fine….( note that symptoms are different and viral loads vary).”
She further spoke to Nigerians on the need to go testing and take the necessary steps to avoid the virus.
“However, a problem with that is they have probably gone on to infect others since they were not monitored or guided. The average span for a covid infection if not severe is 2 weeks (14 days ) when you should totally isolate so as not to infect others,”she wrote.
“Make sure to use vitamins – VitC (1000ml), vitD, and Zinc daily, and please WEAR A MASK. Please maintain physical distancing, wear a mask properly, and wash your hands regularly. I’ll also like to thank the amazing lead Dr who treated me, Dr Folarin Opawoye and Finally, my husband whose Love and Faith nursed us back to health. To God Alone be all the Glory. Thank you all. ❤”
