Nigerian Actress, Omotola Jalade Shares How She Unknowingly Infected Her Children With COVID-19

Omotola Jalade is the latest celebrity to be diagnosed with COVID-19 in Nigeria. she shared this information with her fans via her Instagram page few week ago.

The Nollywood actress revealed that she has been battling with the viral infection for a while now, but she’s grateful to be recovering and doing a whole lot better now.

In an interview with vanguard over the weekend, she revealed that not only did she contact the viral infection, she also exposed and infected her daughter and asthmatic son to it.

According to Vanguard, she said:

I hardly fall ill and so when I left the set and started having chills the next day or so, I knew something wasn’t right. I thought it might be stress. This was on Monday, August 3. I waited till Tuesday and it got worse. I was shaking uncontrollably and my temperature was going through the roof.

My spirit told me immediately, this is not malaria or fever. I have been extremely careful and paranoid about this COVID-19 stuff. So I told hubby I needed to be tested immediately. I have a son that has Asthma!

They came to test me on Wednesday and my result came out on Thursday evening, Positive. My world crashed. I felt crazy and empty. My symptoms were high fever and chills… luckily no other. But it was so bad, they contemplated coming to evacuate me as my viral load was high and I wasn’t getting better … but God arose for me.

So they had to come test the whole family … I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son! My God showed up for me as my son is asymptotic, so positive but not sick! My daughter lost her smell and taste and had severe diarrhoea. All has stopped now, thank God.

We are all now in remission. It’s physically, spiritually and emotionally exhausting as the doctors tell you it’s a 50/50 chance. Nothing you do really saves you. You can only take the vitamins, manage the symptoms and hope your body fights.

Please this thing is real and we must come together to find the safest way to work and protect ourselves. I was one of the most careful persons you’d ever meet concerning COVID-19. Imagine if I believed because of that I couldn’t have been infected… I wish I wasn’t … but I was … I could have been going out and kept on infecting others
