Ex Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria Chike, has disclosed that she has been tested positive for COVID-19.
Maria made this known through an announcement via her Instagram page on Wednesday where she also appreciated her fans for showing concern about her welfare.
Maria on her Instagram stories 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.”
“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.
The reality TV star also advised her fans to take the virus seriously, while assuring 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.”
