Nollywood actress Elvina Ibru has revealed that she tested positive for the horrible coronavirus infection.
Ibru said in a video through her Instagram account that she has been separating and taking her medication since her test came back positive.
She did, however, urge Nigerians to believe the virus is real and take every precaution.
“I just want to tell all of you who walk around without face masks or hand sanitizers that coronavirus is real and that I am currently fighting the virus.
“I’ve been in one room by myself. I can’t even capture my son, sisters, brother or any of my family.
“Anyone can catch this virus and I do not think it is a shame or kept from the public. It is best to let people know that this is bad and that it exists.
“I am very fortunate to be able to make a video to let everyone know that this is true. Two days ago I couldn’t even do anything because I was constantly coughing and I was in a really bad state.
“This virus could have been found anywhere because I was sure I made sure I stayed at home and avoided some gatherings and parties too but I still got the virus.
“Please urge everyone to be careful outdoors, this disease is real and make sure you do everything you can to stay safe,” she said.
