I got infected with COVID-19 on set, passed it on to my children, Omotola

Nollywood veteran, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has opened up on how she contracted the dreaded COVID-19 on the set of a movie and how she infected her son and daughter.

On how she contracted the disease, the mother of four said she started feeling unwell after she left a movie set on Monday, August 3, 2020.

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 have to come test the whole family … I had infected my daughter and asthmatic son! My God showed up for me as my son is asymptomatic, 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.
