After another week we went back to the hospital and we both got the all-clear check.
The Total timeframe of our ordeal was about Four weeks.
I knew I was better when I went to see my mother on her birthday and I ate all the birthday goodies heartily! I knew my appetite and strength were back, she was excited to see me as she had been so worried. We observed strict social distancing protocol.
How did I get Covid-19?
I honestly can’t pinpoint how or where I got it.
I thought I had been very careful observing all the rules and regulations but as a public officer, at some point, we had to go back to work and one is really exposed to the numerous high profile meetings one attends, entourages of people swanning around you, files and letters you come in contact with etc.
I believe my symptoms didn’t become extreme because I had built up my immunity, with vitamins C, D, zinc and lots of exercise. ( That’s my belief)
I thank God for life and I decided to tell my story because COVID-19 IS REAL.
It is important to try and stay safe, as no country has the solution yet. They say the solution lies in a vaccine but in the interim #MaskUp, build your immunity, observe social distancing, stay safe, FOR YOUR LOVED ONES not just yourself.
If you feel like you are being careful already DOUBLE YOUR EFFORTS
I give special thanks to God for the grace of healing.
I thank family and friends for their love and concern for me and my wife which was expressed through numerous phone calls and messages.
I must also mention my boss and brother, the Minister for Investment, Trade and Industry @otunbaniyiadebayo for his kindness throughout this ordeal .
I thank my colleagues at work for their support especially @sidiabdullahi for holding the reins during my absence.
Finally to my doctors at @firstcardiologyconsultants, Dr Yemi Johnson and Dr Kofo Ogunyakin thank you for taking good care of my wife and I.
It is my fervent prayer that the Good Lord will continue to watch over you and all frontline health workers during this period.
I must thank our numerous unofficial doctors as well.
