Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, has narrated his experience as a coronavirus patient, stating that he thought he was going to die.
The governor tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) on March 24, 2020 but has since recovered and ended his self-isolation after testing negative on Thursday, April 9.
In an interview with Channels TV on Monday, April 13, Mohammed said, thought it was a traumatic experience, he never developed any symptom for the disease.
“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.
“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.”
Mohammed, 61, however lamented that the Federal Government failed to issue a lockdown of Bauchi to contain the virus as was imposed on Lagos, Ogun, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, on March 30.
