Prince Wole Oyebamij, the secretary to the government of Osun state recently opened on his experience surviving COVID-19 after testing negative twice for the deadly virus.
Oyebamiji speaking on what he went through noted that his survival shows that coronavirus is not a death sentence, Nigerian Tribune reports.
The Osun SSG who tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago implored Nigerians thinking that the pandemic is a scam to have a rethink and wake up to reality. He went on to say that if the virus is not properly and promptly treated, could lead to death.
Oyebamiji while narrating his experience attested to the reality of the virus, adding that there is no sense in saying the virus is a scam.
He urged the people to cooperate with the government and abide by the safety rules as that is the only way to contain the virus.
When asked how he contracted the deadly virus that is ravaging the country, Oyebamiji said though he did everything to stay safe but only God knows how he got infected.
However, he credited the frontline role he played after the outbreak of the disease in Osun state as a major factor that may have led to him getting infected with coronavirus.
Oyebamiji explained that getting infected with COVID-19 was not due to carelessness but rather a job hazard.
Recall that the secretary to the government of Osun state alongside his staff members tested positive for the coronavirus pandemic. The news was announced by the commissioner for information in the state, Dr. Rafiu Isamotu, on Tuesday, June 30.
Isamotu in a press statement said: “I want to confirm to you that our SSG and some of the staff around him have tested positive to the virus. But they are all in stable condition and are receiving adequate medical care.”
