According to the screen diva, “her world crashed and she felt crazy and empty when her test came back positive.

“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 and I have been extremely careful and paranoid about this COVID-19 stuff.

“So I told hubby I needed to be tested immediately because I also 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.

“I went into isolation immediately. We got my result but my daughter started feeling funny.

“So they had to come test the whole family.

“I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son!

“Fortunately, my God showed up for me as my son is asymptotic, so positive but not sick.

“However, my daughter lost her sense of smell and taste and had severe diarrhea but all has stopped now, thank God.”
