Coronavirus is a scam in Nigeria - Discharged COVID-19 patient in Delta State

A woman who was discharged after recovering from COVID-19 in Delta State has said that the virus is a scam in Nigeria.

The woman who was said to have been positive for the virus stated that she never her saw her test result.

After spending 17 days at the isolation center in Warri, Delta State, the woman was discharged after testing negative for COVID-19.

Speaking to journalist after she was discharged, she said: “It was an audio result that I got. They called me to tell me that I was positive but did not give me any result. Before I was taken there I already said the virus is not in this country. We cannot curb its spread if it is in this nation. The disease may be in the western world, but not here. Keeping me there (Isolation Center) was against my wish.

“The markets are crowded; if it is here more people would have been affected. The banks are also crowded. It’s a scam in this nation. I am a witness. I have been there. I may have stayed at the isolation centre, but I do not see myself as a COVID-19 patient.

“My friend who was with me before I was admitted is living his normal life. He is fine. His test was negative. How about my family at home? When I was sick my mother was the one bathing me and even slept in the same room with me many times. She is almost 70 and still living her normal life. Imagine the close contact she had with me.

“They did not plan the drama before they went on stage. They would have quarantined my family. The reports that the doctors that attended to me were all tested positive for COVID-19 are all fabricated stories.”
