Nollywood finest actress Omotola Jalade has cried out for infecting her asthmatic son and daughter with the deadly Covid-19.
She confesses that her world instantly crashed when she tested positive.
Commenting on her ordeal, Omotola revealed that she is one person who seldom gets sick so when she started feeling feverish, she knew something out to be wrong and it was no Malaria or Fever.
“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. 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!”
She says the rest of the family tested and her son and daughter, unfortunately, tested positive with her other son and husband testing negative.
“So they had to come test the whole family … I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son ! My God showed up for me as my son is asymptotic, so positive but not sick ! My daughter lost her smell and taste and had severe diarrhea. All has stopped now, thank God.”
Omotola says although all of it is exhausting and emotionally draining, they are all fine now.
“My husband and last son tested negative respectively. We are all now in remission … taking another test soon.”
