  1. Omg I'm on this boat. I can't smell or taste anything. Like I can only taste if something is sugary or salty that's all. This is coupled with serious headaches and flu symptoms o. I have been treating malaria and typhoid with flu. I won't lie, I was really scared at first but the smell and taste buds are gradually coming back. Hmmmmn

    1. You are already recovering from the virus. I pray God perfects your healing. Even in countries like America and U.k where the virus wa very bad,most people just get a bi sick and recover from it at home without even knowing it was the virus. You will be alright. It's just the fear of infecting others that makes this virus really bad.

    4. By these revelations, then there’s an iota of truth in the figures the Govt is putting out there.
      Perhaps if all these were also captured, then our numbers are way more than what is being projected.
      Maybe the fear factor and the manner the Govt has treated the infected so far has contributed to people self medicating.
      Simply put, self medicating people are aware it’s Covid.

  2. Sometime last 2 years, I had catarrh, I sneezed one kind sneeze, that looked like my nose felled off with the sneeze, I noticed that I couldn't perceive anything again for 2months I struggled with myself, my sis was enjoying it and messing anyhow, if I complain of the sound she will tell me atleast u did not perceive it, I was so frustrated that period I was busy struggling to perceive all kinds of smell, I practically became a Rottweiler before i began to get better but it wasn't as it used to be, it takes time before I perceive, but am grateful to God. Bvs Corona is not our portion that shit is scary, if u loose ur ability of using something u use freely without collecting permission u will be grateful to God and value it.

    2. @ Mao Akuh yes many have corona but don't know. We all fell sick in our house having the same symptoms. Thank God for protecting our 5 year old niece. All 6 adults had high persistent fever, sore throat difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath, muscles aches, loss of smell and taste. Mine was worst. I had fever for 7 days straight. We all thought it was malaria although we had a few new symptoms unlike our normal malaria and we found it weird that everyone was having the same symptoms. My mom joked about us going to the hospital and getting quarantined for corona virus and we all laughed about it. Never in our wildest dreams did we know that we were already infected (shortness of breath wasn't new to us when sick cos we had such history in our family, although it seldom happens). Our sense of taste and smell did not return for like a month after. Fast forward 3 weeks after the recovery from the illness, my mom had cause to visit our family friend who is a consultant in UPTH and my mom told her of how we all fell ill at the same time with the same symptoms but in varying degrees. The lady told her that we had corona virus. Something like the primary corona virus or so. She said he had all the symptoms of the virus, people that had tested positive had the exact same symptoms with us. I thank God that we had no casualties. We cured ours with strong malaria drugs and strong antibiotics by the way.

  7. About two weeks ago I had symptoms of maaria n typhoid. I took 3 drip n 3 injections.i was getting better but I noticed I couldn't percive anything, from my body cream to deodorant to fuel etc. I had serious catarch, no cough though. I had appointment at the general hospital this June for my family planning clinic, i was scared to go. A pharmacis neighbor gave me emzor product puritin tablets. I took 2 each for 3 day. The dry nose n catarch is gone. I can now smell n percieve things. It was indeed a scare. I am very okay now. I didn't go for any Corona test, I know I don't have it. Alot of cases will be detected this period,it is not the virus. Thank you you Jesus for healing me.

    2. 12:28 please Suga Nane alone.
      The test is a broad one and most tests come out positive EVEN when people do not have the virus.
      Not every symptom is Covid-19 just like not every symptom of fever or aches and pain indicates positive malaria test.

  9. Which one is new strain of malaria again? Nigerians like to live in self denial,I swear! So right in the middle of a whole wide corona virus pandemic,malaria has suddenly developed a new strain that mimics corona virus symptoms? That right there( loss of smell and taste ) is a classic symptom of corona virus. Please go and get tested asap if you have that symptom so you will know to self- isolate and not infect others around you. Corona virus is not a death sentence,just get treated with the recommended drugs and self-isolate until you feel better. You wi not die ( except you have some other underlying serious health issues like asthma,sickle cell,lung or kidney disease etc which would put you at a higher risk of becoming very sick). Please in this case,ignorance is not bliss oh.

    3. Hi dear, it’s not compulsory that pple who can’t smell or taste must have covid. It happened to me last week and I went and got tested and my result was negative. A friend has same experience and tested and it was negative, plus it was malaria so truly there’s a strain out there causing this and this is rainy season pple are also coming down with malaria so let’s not say covid all d time before pple start dying of high blood pressure Biko

    4. At anon 20:21. In medicine, there terms like "false positives and false negatives" You may need to get re-tested. Remember Abia state Governor tested negative initially. I don't mean to scare you please. Just making sure you are properly managed for YOUR own and your family's good.

    2. Thank you engraced.
      I don't know how people suddenly have short term and selective memory plus living in denial.
      Malaria now gives Loss of smell. Okurrrr.
      You'll usually test positive for malaria, common, you're in a malaria endemic zone.
      Testing positive for malaria doesn't mean you should be sick, you get sick from it when it overwhelms your body.
      Same with coronavirus etc.
      As a Nigerian, you only test negative to malaria when you treat for malaria and mosquitoes never bite you

    3. 12:36 if one has malaria and catarrh that person can experience temporary loss of both senses - smell and taste.

      Covid-19 is not even pandemic in anyway. They keep pushing that narrative through the media because that's what they want the world to believe.
      Annual death rate from 'flu supercedes what they' ve recorded as death from Covid-19.
      Annual death rate from other causes worldwide is 56m plus. That's official the statistics. How then is Covid-19 a pandemic????

  14. Someone said it's a Nigerian (African) way of showing symptoms of covid19. That our immune system had battled and defeated malaria/typhoid. So by losing the sense of smell I'd the only thing Corona could find on " Us"πŸ€ͺπŸ€“

  22. Loosing sense of smell or loosing sense of taste is a symptom of corona virus.dont panick just eat healthy and isolate yourself,in one or two weeks your immune system will overcome the virus and u will be ok,it has no drug.the only problem is if u have an underlying health challenge

    ReplyDelete
  23. It happened to me last month. I was practically sniffing everything in order to perceive it but I couldn't, even to have a taste of what I was eating. I really felt scared at that time. My brother in law added to my fears by asking if I was sure it was not the virus. I went to the clinic and was treated for typhoid and malaria and within a week I could both taste and smell. It felt like one who just got a visa after many trials. I appreciated the sense of taste and smell after that.

  24. It's Covid 19...but God in his faithfulness for us did not allow it to be more than that symptoms and then we recover.

    To say I was scared is an understatement, I was legit scared for my life.. I had almost all the symptoms of corona except difficulty in breathing...
    I got a malaria and typhoid treatment till it vanishes.

I still went ahead to treat malaria with an antimalaria drug. I became better after about two days. All I kept thinking about during that period was Coronavirus.

  32. Around Feb I had the most horrible cough and catarrh, I was so sick. I draw nose for almost two months. I believe Corona came since Feb but we started testing March. I treated for Malaria and upper respiratory tract infections. I even had difficulty in breathing. It was a horrible experience. I no know if na Coro but I had like 95% of Coro symptoms. It was horrible.

  33. I am shocked at the response so far. But really, could it be Covid19? If only a few go for testing, that means the NCDC data is far from correct. Moreso,how come those that treated themselves at home recovered faster than those at the isolation centres?
    Just thinking!

  34. I cold not smell but my taste bud is perfect,smell dey come back small small

  35. It means all those NCDC figures should actually be much higher if government is very serious with the testing. Thank God you all recovered. God will perfect your healing in Jesus name. When I go out, you feel like there is no more covid. Government should continue and be serious with sensitising people especially market women,drivers ,conductors and the likes. God will help us all

  39. My colleague complained of loss of taste and smell. The next day he started feeling feverish. He contacted NIMR and reeled a covid'19 test request and got an auto response that they contact him soon. The next day he went to a testing canter nearest to him and he was told to go back home that he will be contacted in due course. Two days after having not heard from the officials he went to a private hospital for test based on connection, if was quite expensive over a 100k. Two days later test came out positive and he was given medication by our office physician. He is getting better gradually. Based on the above I suspect most people here may have contracted the virus. So it's not a scam as many thought

    ReplyDelete
  40. It is quite obvious that all reported symptoms of loss of smell and taste are of COVID-19. Just goes to show how far the virus has infected many contrary to published NDCD figures.

    Thank God for His mercies 'cos the blatant disregard for medical advice in this country is worrisome.

  41. I have been saying those numbers but NCDC put out should be higher.This post has proven that.All I can say is God is being merciful to us. The restrictions on schools,events and churches has also helped mitigate the spread

  43. I and my husband just recovered from covid19, This was our recipe ... Dogonyaro leaf
    Guava leaf
    Paw paw leaf
    Mango leaf
    Lemon grass. Boil it very well and drink 2x a day. You will also steam from it or boil in a separate pot for steaming. It’s very effective
