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. 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). 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. 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. ❤

In the post, she appreciated God for seeing her through the treatment period.

The actress also thanked her family, friends and well-wishers for their overwhelming support during her battle with the novel disease.

The 42-year-old actress, however, urged people who still doubt the existence of the virus to ditch such mindset.

“If you still don’t believe this virus is real, I pray you don’t experience it to believe,” she added.

She went on to enjoin those who are exhibiting symptoms related to the novel disease not to be scared, urging them to go for test instead while ensuring compliance with the various safety directives introduced by the government.

“If you ever feel ill during this pandemic, pls know there’s nothing to fear or be ashamed of…you’re not alone. Please, get tested immediately, it could save your life.
