My Three Layers Of Protection Didn’t Stop Me From Contracting COVID-19 – Onyeama Speaks




Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, says though he had “three layers of protection,” they did not stop him from contracting the COVID-19 global pandemic.

He described how he contracted and later underwent three-week treatment for the infection.

Onyeama spoke on Thursday in Abuja at the joint national briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the minister, who was confirmed positive on July 19 after his fourth COVID-19 test, joined the list of governors and other prominent Nigerians who had contracted the virus.

While some died of the complications of the virus, some survived to tell their stories.

He said: “I have to say that one of the things I was thinking about is that the PTF is like a military high command. It occurred to me that none has been tested positive.

“Maybe it was a good thing that a member of the team can now speak from experience and not just from hearing. COVID-19 is real. I used to have three layers of protection but it did not stop that.

“I will like to say that the issue of stigmatisation is nothing to be ashamed of. Anybody can get this virus and it is nothing to fear. It is not a death sentence.

“In my case, the moment I felt something different on a Friday, I was tested the following day but we don’t have the capacity.

“I was discussing with the Minister of Health that if people cannot be tested sooner enough, they can recommend some medication. Don’t feel it is anything shameful. Just treat it like any other sickness.”

The minister added: “I will like to use the opportunity to thank the medical crew in the isolation I was staying and very proud that they are Nigerians.

“We can be negative on ourselves but for the three weeks in isolation, I cannot speak more highly of our medical crew. The most agreeable. I could even go back there for weekends. I really congratulate them for the work they did.”
