Popular entertainer and musician, Peter Okoye, has revealed that his daughter, wife and himself had tested positive for COVID-19 three weeks ago. Okoye who said two other domestic staff also tested positive have narrated their ordeal handling the virus.
Okoye who made this revelation earlier today in his instagram handle in a four minutes video also advised his fans to take proper precautions against the pandemic as it is real.
”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 COVID19 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.”
Continuing he said, “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. I don’t know how to say it 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,” he said.
“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.”Follow us on social media
