We had no symptoms and still both feel perfectly fine but because of our recent travel history we decided to take ourselves and all our close associates we have come in recent contact with for the COVID-19 test on the 25th of March 2020.
Unfortunately, my fiancé’s Chioma results came back positive while all 31 others tested have come back negative including our baby. We are however doing perfectly fine and she is even still yet to show any symptoms whatsoever.
She is now being quarantined and I have also gone into full self isolation for the minimum of 14 days. I want to use this opportunity to thank you all for your endless love and prayers in advance and to urge everyone to please stay at home as we control the spread of this virus! Together we can beat this!
Love, D Red heart,” he had posted on Twitter.
