A member of the House of Representatives, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, has narrated her COVID-19 experience after recovering from the virus.
Naija News reports the member representing Oluyole Federal Constituency in the lower Chamber tested positive for COVID-19 in early December last year.
Narrating how she battled with the deadly Coronavirus, Akande-Sadipe said that she noticed the symptoms of the virus in early December, and immediately had a test that confirmed the positive status.
The lawmaker explained that though she was very careful before the ordeal, her experience has taught her a lesson that truly COVID-19 should not be handled with levity especially amid the family unit and members of the same household.
She appreciated her family members, political allies, and colleagues in the House who stood by her in prayer during the ordeal.
He said: “I feel great, I thank God for Life and my recovery and I am happy to be here today at this, Oyo Central Senatorial District meeting, being my first home outing since the battle with the deadly virus.
“COVID-19 is real. During the experience, each passing day was a gift. With God first, proper medication, and management, I overcame.
“I would advise members of my constituency and Nigerians to observe social distancing religiously and wear face masks appropriately until further notice. This is not the time for socializing.
“COVID-19 is deceptive, don’t self-medicate when you feel like you have malaria. Seek medical attention urgently.”
