Former Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria Chike, on Wednesday revealed that she has been tested positive for COVID-19.
She made this announcement via her Instagram page where she also appreciated her fans for showing concern about her well-being.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Maria wrote, “My heartbeats, I heard you were all concerned about me. Thank you so much for all your kind messages. Unfortunately, I have tested positive to COVID-19 but I can reassure you, I am doing really well.”
The reality TV star also revealed the troubles she had during the tests, as the earlier results conflicted.
“I initially had a negative result from Dubai less than 24 hours of coming into Ghana. Upon arrival in 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,” Maria said.
Advising her fans to take the virus seriously, she also assured them that she had been placed in the best possible care.
She said, “Please, do not take COVID-19 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 cannot wait to get back to work.”
