Veteran Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has just revealed her latest experiences since contracting the dreaded corona virus. This was during a debate on how Nollywood can adhere strictly to the health guidelines of COVID-19 before reopening productions on the popular filmmakers’ WhatsApp group, Filmic.
Vanguard reported that the veteran actress said she was treated by some infectious decease doctors who told her that many people are infected with the virus because there’s no widespread testing.
Omotola further revealed that when most people feel unwell, they attribute it to malaria, diarrhea among other ailments. Recalling how she contracted the disease on a movie set, the actress said;
“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.”
Further, she said:
“My spirit told me immediately, this is not malaria or fever. I have been extremely careful and paranoid about this COVID-19 stuff. So I told hubby I needed to be tested immediately. I have a son that has Asthma!
