A woman has claimed the positive result she had after testing for coronavirus in Delta state, Nigeria is scam as she did not show any symptoms all through her stay at the isolation center.
The woman claimed after the 1st conformation, all the tests she had in her 17-day spell at the isolation center was negative.
Upon her discharge, the patient insisted that she never received or saw her COVID-19 test results. She claimed that COVID-19 is a scam in Nigeria because her family members who were in close contact with her were not infected, The Vanguard reports.
“It was an audio result that I got. They called me to tell me that I was positive but did not give me any result. Before I was taken there I already said the virus is not in this country. We cannot curb its spread if it is in this nation. The disease may be in the western world, but not here. Keeping me there (Isolation Center) was against my wish.
“The markets are crowded; if it is here more people would have been affected. The banks are also crowded. It’s a scam in this nation. I am a witness. I have been there. I may have stayed at the isolation centre, but I do not see myself as a COVID-19 patient.
“My friend who was with me before I was admitted is living his normal life. He is fine. His test was negative. How about my family at home? When I was sick my mother was the one bathing me and even slept in the same room with me many times. She is almost 70 and still living her normal life. Imagine the close contact she had with me.
“They did not plan the drama before they went on stage. They would have quarantined my family. The reports that the doctors that attended to me were all tested positive for COVID-19 are all fabricated stories.”
