One of several COVID-19 patients recently discharged in Delta State, Monday in what appears to be a renewed campaign against claims that she has tested positively for the virus, alleged the ailment is a scam in the country.
The patient, a 36-year-old woman, was declared positive for the virus on April 17 following her statements to be negative for the virus and was consequently admitted to Warri’s COVID-19 Isolation / Treatment Center for 17days before her discharge.
While being discharged after having apparently screened negative for the infection, the nurse persisted on never getting or seeing her tests showing her condition of the disease she believed to be a hoax while talking to journalists.
“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.”
