One of the three discharged patients In Imo State who has been in isolation centre at the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Owerri , Mr. Christian Isiuba from Umujiriji, Ehume, Obowo LGA, has opened up on his experience during isolation , alleging that there is no cases of Covid 19 virus in the state.
Fielding questions from Trumpeta at his home in Obowo on Sunday, the 43- year old, Isiuba, said everything about the dreaded Covid 19 claims in Imo State is a sheer gimmick by the state government to allegedly deceive the Federal Government.
Narrating his ugly experience Isiuba who was recently declared to be Covid-19 positive after two weeks he returned from Kano State stated that he was wrongfully declared to be Covid-19 positive by the health officials working for the State government.
He pointed out that the whole scenario came to him as a shock having driven from Kano State down to his country home to see his aging father without any symptom or sickness.
He said that after two weeks of his stay at home, people started raising false alarm that he recently returned from Kano with his sick mother, a report which he said was false stressing that his mother is healthy over there in Kano State.
Mr. Christian posited that he was first contacted by health officials from Obowo Local government who then alerted the state health officials and on their coming they searched the whole house looking for his mother who people said he came back with but didn’t see her after which they contacted her on telephone and she told them that she is healthy and fine over there in Kano State.
Consequently, his sample was taken to Ebonyi State for testing and was told that his result will be ready within 48 hours and incidentally that lasted for one week before they came back with a false result they never showed to him declaring him Covid-19 positive.
Following that, the state Medical Director who led the team told him that he will be taken to Isolation center in FMC, Owerri, for proper treatment and management and as law abiding citizen he followed them to the isolation center.
Mr. Christian Isiuba disclosed that he stayed at the isolation center for eight days where he was given two tablets of Vitamin C morning, afternoon and night as medication for Coronavirus treatment but knowing that he has no symptom of Covid-19 refused taking the drugs they gave to him.
He reiterated that while in the isolation center the medical personnel came and took another sample of his for testing and up till the time he was released from the Isolation center after eight days, they never showed him his results for the two samples they took for testing.
He further hinted that what is happening at the Imo state isolation center in FMC is like a child’s play where someone who does not have any symptom of Covid-19 will be taken to isolation center for a reason he does not know.
He maintained that even some other person’s he met at the isolation center were healthy without any symptom of the virus.
He opined that the state government is doing all it could to put its name on list as among the state with Coronavirus cases for a reason best known to them.
He therefore used the opportunity to thank his family members, his community and the medical personnel who showed him love and care all through his stay at the isolation center.
