Maria Chike, a well-known brand influencer and BBnaija star, admits contracting the Covid-19 virus while pleading to her fans not to take Covid-19 for granted.
The news comes only days after the reality star was detained in Ghana against her will after testing positive for the virus.
Maria said she was negative from her Dubai vacation till she tested positive in Ghana after a series of tests, according to a statement on her Instastory page.
She assured her fans, however, that she will recover quickly and return to Nigeria from her quarantine zone in Ghana.
“My heartbeats, I heard you were all concerned about me. Thank you so much for all your hind messages. Unfortunately, I have tested positive to covid-19 but I can reassure you I am doing really well. I initially had a negative result from dubai less than 24 hours of coming into ghana, upon arrival into ghana I tested positive and was asked to quarantine, I got a different doctor that tested me negative again. We had so many back and forth results of positives and negatives. But finally I have tested positive. Please do not take covid for granted and don’t try to be as stubborn as myself always. I have been placed in the best possible care and receiving treatment. I will be in ghana until I am fully recovered and tested negative. I love you all and can not wait to get back to work,” the statement reads.
