In a video post she shared on her Instagram page,Elvina said she has been in isolation and taking her medication since she tested positive.
She went on to appeal to Nigerians by confirming that the virus is real and should not be seen as one to be played with.
According to her: “I just want to tell all of you that walk around without face masks or hand sanitizers that coronavirus is real and am currently battling the virus.
I have been in one room all by myself. I can’t even hug my son, sisters, brother or any of my family members.
Anybody can contract this virus and I don’t think it’s something to be ashamed of or kept from the public. It’s better to let the people out there know that this is serious and it does exist.”
She strongly emphasise the need to observe the wearing of mask,using hand sanitizer and regular Washing of hands as well as maintaining social distance in the face of the second wave,which appears to be more vicious.
