Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed says fear of death to coronavirus was always on his mind after he tested positive to the disease and isolated because it has no definite cure or vaccine. Mohammed has since recovered and tested negative.

The isolation experience, according to him, is one he would never wish such for anybody.

“It is a very traumatic experience for one to know that you are infected by a disease for which there is no vaccine, presumably. I thought I was going to die, but certainly I had a very strong will to live. I was put on certain medication by my doctor, that is antibiotics and malaria drugs,” he said during a TV programme.

Muhammed tested to the virus March 24 shortly after he returned from Lagos.

The governor was reported to have contacted the virus from a son of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, whom he met in an aircraft during a flight from Lagos to Abuja. He was discharged April 9.

However, Mohammed said that even after he was discharged, the fear of the virus was still on his mind even though he never manifested any symptoms of the disease throughout his self isolation period.

“I never had any manifestation of the symptoms all the period that I was there (in isolation), but I was under severe suspense that it might come any time,” he said. (Vanguard)
