‘I got my results today,’ BBC presenter Ian Wafula tests positive for Covid-19

BBC presenter Ian Wafula has tested positive for Covid-19.

Ian says he has been on the frontline covering the pandemic for the past four months.

He says he felt a slight headache last week, itchy throat and had some slight chest pains.

His sister is in isolation as the two stay together.

Here is the post he put up on his social media account;

“Got my results earlier today and I tested positive for COVID19. Have spent the last 4 months covering the pandemic and even did a story on “Do you know somebody?” Well now I do. I remember last week Monday feeling slight headaches, itchy throat, slight chest pain and lack of taste but that was it. Dr. Wasike here is a gem, as soon as she saw the results on mail I could tell she panicked but up until she broke the news and told me how to take care of myself moving forward she had been very calm and professional and we ended up laughing about the whole scenario,” he wrote.

He added;

“I’m the first patient she has had to break the news to. She was glad that I’ve been exercising and trying to keep safe. My family and friends have been very supportive once I told them and so have my bosses. I’m sharing this so that more of us know that the disease is real, so we stop having stigma towards it and so that we be careful. My sister and I will isolate at home as we stay together. She is well and has not shown any symptoms. All is well!”

Other media personalities that have tested positive and gone public with the news includes Citizen’s Jeff Konange and Steven Letoo.
