‘I Thought I Was Going To Die’ – Coronavirus Survivor Shares Her Experience

One of the Five patients of Coronavirus that was discharged on Monday, Oluwaseun Ayodeji Osowobi has narrated her experience in isolation centre while battling with the deadly virus.

Oluwaseun who returned to Nigeria from the UK post- Commonwealth event said she fell ill after the travel history and then self-isolated herself.

Oluwaseun was positive after being tested for the virus.

Talking to Twitter, she wrote: “Life finds ways of throwing LEMON at me. I’ve struggled w/ coming forward, but I want to inspire hope.

“I returned to Nigeria from the UK post-Commonwealth event (I totally enjoyed) & fell ill. As a responsible person, I self-isolated.



“Before returning, I had planned several interviews, I was scheduled to start a fantastic consultancy job & was also expecting to sign a contract worth millions.

I lost them all!!!

“I had to self-isolate and also inform people I came in close contact with to get tested. #COVID19

She also spoke about her experience at the isolation centre; how she was treated.

According to her, “Today, I am PROUD to inform you that I MURDERED COVID-19 & have tested NEGATIVE TWICE! I HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED!

I bless God for His mercies. The nurses at IDH Yaba were fab. They deserve accolades for their hard work. Thank you Governor @jidesanwoolu for coming to see me.

Thanks to everyone who called, sent messages and tried to contact me. I am grateful and well.

This experience reminded me of the value of friendship. Some people I refer to as friends speculated about this, but never reached out to check. Thank you still. Back to the grind!

To every young person out there, please give your lungs a chance to beat this. Can I encourage you to stop smoking & live a healthy life at this time? A healthy lung is KEY!

This another phase of my life & I HAVE won! I celebrate my resilience and strength.
