The actress made this known via her official Instagram account as she narrated her ordeal while she was in self-isolation.
Lola Alao added that she doesn’t wish anyone to experience what she went through. She added that it was so bad that she couldn’t smell anything.
“I tested positive for COVID-19 but I am fine now. To God be the glory. I was sick to the bone and couldn’t smell anything.
“I was so scared because I had kids to take care of. You don’t ever want to imagine going into self-isolation and not seeing your loved ones.”
“I don’t know what you must have heard about COVID-19, but I tell you today that it is way deadlier than you can ever think of.
“At this critical time when people are beginning to ignore the warnings against this virus, you can make a difference with your family members by being very conscious of the fact that it is still very much around.
“There is a thin line between life and death. Please, be nice to everyone around you always. My name is Lola Alao. Stay very safe, my people.”
According to the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), the country so far has recorded 53,727 COVID-19 cases with 41,314 cases discharged and 1011 deaths recorded.
