Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that while the stories of Covid-19 infection cases abound and we think that is all there is to the pandemic, there are also narratives of heroes who are putting themselves at great risk to ensure the outbreak does not get worse.
In Nigeria, Dr Amara Allison is one of such people. She was the medical officer who diagnosed Nigeria’s first case of Covid-19. After that experience, she had to go through a compulsory 14-day quarantine with 35 other people who had been in contact with the patient.
In an interview, she said the quarantine experience was quite unreal, saying she could not imagine being in that situation.
She said by the third day, she was drowned with emotions and became visibly afraid of the situation she was in.
Thankfully, her family gave all the emotional support she needed during the period, an act she said she is grateful for.

As days went by, she developed a creative way to deal with boredom and anxiety through books and movies. She said that the quarantine space was comfortable and advised that having means of entertainment really do make the period bearable.
