”I had malaria a few days ago and was treated. I did get over it and as at the time we had our party NEC and my colleagues called on me, I spoke with one of them who felt that malaria shouldn’t be treated lightly but that I should go ahead and have a test for COVID19.
The result come out today June 30 and I tested positive.
I am asymptommatic. I am not feeling sick nor feeling hot in anyway but my doctors have decided I should take the normal treatment and self isolate. I beleieve that supervised home management will be ideal for me for now and so from now I will be isolated and go on with the supervised home management” he said.
