A Nigerian man with the Twitter name Oluwatimilehin has narrated his experience as a coronavirus survivor.

He said coronavirus is indeed big as he appealed to the general public not to take it lightly, asking them to abide by all the protective measures.

Oluwatimilehin said that though he was asymptomatic all through, not many who were admitted were lucky.

He said that he has had to face the stigma regarding his health status, a thing he said he expected to happen.

In other news, the head pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, said that the church will not be as it used to be after the deadly coronavirus outbreak is over.

The man of God said that the pandemic will greatly affect churches, as some of them may witness a big reduction in their membership as many members might just want to continue worshipping God from home.

“That’s an issue I have pondered upon severally because the church may not be the same again after this COVID-19 experience. As you can see, many people have been receiving messages via online broadcast from their homes. It’s no longer like before that they have to be physically present in churches,” he said.
