“As at Friday 3rd July, I started feeling better but in order to be more careful, conscious of my type of work involving meeting with hundreds of people everyday I decided to invite the state Corvid-19 test team that took my samples on the 4th of July, 2020.
“As at Monday July 6, I was already feeling a lot better but the result of the test I took days earlier returned positive for Covid-19. I have moved into isolation. All the signs of illness are gone now and I am strong and in high spirit. I thank all of you for your prayers,” he said.
