COVID-19: OAP Toolz narrates her experience after she, husband tested positive

On-air personality Tolu Demuren also called Toolz to her Twitter post to announce that she and her hubby, Captain Tunde Demuren, were positive for the Coronavirus novel.

Toolz made this known in a series of tweets on her account Tuesday.

She also revealed that her biggest worries were her children who were fortunately not affected by the virus.

According to her, both of them were retested and the new test results came back negative.

“Feeling very grateful to God today! At this point in the last month, we were going through a very scary time!

“Almost everyone in our house (myself included) was positive for COVID-19.

“I just wanted to return to work after my motherhood, and it all started with the Captain complaining of ‘malaria-like’ symptoms.

“He had taken a COVID-19 test a few days earlier and that was negative, so I thought it was a serious case of malaria.

“However, he was admitted with malaria and bacterial infection after being given intravenous antibiotics and other coins he was still not getting better.

“I decided to move him to a different hospital, and they did a test again, and he blew up the test according to the doctor.

“My body went cold, and the first thing I thought was’ OMG the babies !! ‘. Then a while later, I thought about myself. I did a quick test, and it was positive.

“None of us had the usual symptoms at first – no coughing, or breathing problems … although I lost my sense of smell and taste.

The Captain was in the hospital for a week and this was around the time of Lekki’s shooting, so I was very scared.

“My main fear was the babies especially our youngest son as he was just about 3 months old. We didn’t test them, but I was sure they had COVID too because we literally kiss and chew our boys every day.

“Thank God our baby was OK. I was okay too, just scared. When you get that positive result, you get those random tokens that you didn’t have before.

“The strangest thing is the taste and smell. Everything Captain tasted bad, it’s food and so that was weird. One of my great powers is my sense of smell and it has gradually disappeared.

“After 2 weeks we reaffirmed and all were negatively optimistic. Thank Almighty God for seeing us through, many thanks to the doctors who looked after us especially Dr Majekodunmi from Eurocare for the lasting peace of mind, and for taking my million and one call

“I’m very grateful I didn’t get it when I was pregnant. I thought I traveled to get my baby, came back, did 7 COVID tests, and the 8th was a positive.

“The hardest thing that week was before I told someone that COVID is no longer in Lagos. I’m stupid, ”she said.
