If you are infected with Coronavrus and you think your life has come to an end, it is high time you thought twice because Frederick Drah, a patient infected with the novel coronavirus in Ghana says contracting the virus is not a death sentence.

He said he decided to speak out in view of vast misinformation about the virus that has gone around with many people portraying the pandemic Coronavrus as synonymous with death,once once some body tests positive.

Speaking in an interview in Ghana, Drah, who is recovering from the disease said: ‘Currently, I am not afraid but in the initial stages, the way the information about the virus had gone around made it seem that when you’re tested positive, the following day you’re going to die.

“But when I came here to this treatment centre as the first to be tested positive, it was a different situation”

“So, my people out there should know that testing positive for COVID-19, despite it being a deadly virus, does not mean that you will die, nobody just dies like that,” he said.

Drah, after narrating his ordeal on how he got infected,en
urged the public to desist from misinformation and stigmatization about the virus.

“I was picked up to the National Treatment Centre here at the Ga East Municipal Hospital and since I’ve been here, the nurses, doctors and healthcare workers have taken very good care of me.

“People have been coming in here and they’ve been tested, when nothing is found in them, they’re asked to go home.

Meanwhile, reliable sources indicate that Africa had 10,947 Coronavrus cases as at April 8, out of which Nigeria has 276.
