Owner of Daar Communications Limited, publisher of AIT and Raypower Radio broadcasting station, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has said that he was treated with malaria medication to get him out of coronavirus for which he was confined into Gwagwalada isolation centre.
Dokpesi, who was tested negative after some days in isolation and treatment from coronavirus and discharged from the center yesterday, May 15, in a trending video clip, stressed that he did not see any difference between malaria and coronavirus.
“Every medication we were given (in the isolation centre), was malaria medication.
“Even some people before being told they were Covid 19 positive were tested in reputable laboratories in Abuja: in hospitals in Abuja. What they found was that they had a lot of malaria parasites in their blood stream. So, when did malaria become synonymous with Covid 19? That is food for thought.”
Chief Dokpesi, who commended Nigeria medical personnel for the professional ways they have been handling patients in isolation centres, stressed that he still has doubt in his mind about the reality of the coronavirus.
“I still want to be properly educated (I’m a bloody mechanic): what is the difference between Covid 19, which is a virus and malaria which is mosquito induced.”
