Popular Nigerian music executive Jude Okoye has opened up on how he contracted the deadly Coronavirus that have caused the deaths of thousands of people across the globe.
In an exclusive chat with The PUNCH via the telephone, Jude Okoye, revealed that his wife contracted the virus from him despite all the preventive measures he put in place.
He further allayed the fears of his friends and fans as he stated that his wife was faring well.
“My wife is responding to treatment but I will not really say treatment because COVID does not have a cure. She is responding to the symptom she is getting. We got it about the same time; I got it and she got it from me. It was just a day gap before she got it from me.
“She is self-isolating at home. Everybody is fine including the kids; it is just that for my wife, she has recovered but she is having this post-recovery symptom. That is what is going on. Everybody is fine even though everybody in my family got it. Me, my wife, kids, nanny, everybody contracted the virus.”
Jude said that he believed that he caught the virus from his popular singing brother, Paul Okoye, fondly referred to as Rudeboy.
He further emphasized that he tried his best not to contract the virus but ‘it takes only one person to infect the whole family.”
“There is nothing I did not do in order not to contract the virus; I did social distancing, I stopped going out, I had hand sanitisers everywhere and I was wearing a face mask. But the fact that you have a cook that would go to the market and return, it takes just one person to bring it and pass it to the whole family. Just do your best because at the end of the day what will happen will happen.
“I believe I got the virus from Rudeboy because we normally sit together most times and he is the one that goes out for promotions. Somehow, I believe that I got it from him because I do not go out.”
