Edo speaker shares experience after surviving COVID-19

Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Mr. Frank Okiye, says he was destabilised after testing positive for coronavirus.

Okiye is among the seven patients who have fully recovered and tested negative twice for the virus.

The speaker officially resumed for work on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, after necessary clearance.

He expressed appreciation to the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government and the state’s medical team, noting, “The virus is not a death sentence. I thank the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government, the medical team and members of my family and others who prayed for me.

He also urged residents in the state to take the opportunity provided by the state government for screening and testing to check the spread of coronavirus.

“It is common knowledge that the virus has no cure or vaccine. It is not a death sentence. People should take the directives of the government and health experts on social distancing and other instructions seriously.

“What saved the day for me was early treatment. The test was carried out after I became symptomatic. It is better to know your status early enough,” the speaker said.

“It was after I tested positive for coronavirus that I became a bit destabilised. After a while and with continuous interaction with people, I started overcoming the virus with local herbs and medication.

“I was placed on drugs to deal with the symptoms. A few days later, I started feeling better. Mine was with mild symptoms. I was not hit hard by the virus.”
