Chairman Emeritus, DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has says he is confused on what constitutes malaria and that of coronavirus and demanded medical experts to explain better.
He spoke in his Abuja residents while speaking after his discharge from COVID-19 quarantine at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada.
While thanking the health minister, the Director General of the Nigeria Center for Diseases Control (NCDC) and other health officials for taking care of him, members of his family and other Nigerians affected by the virus, Dokpesi said he was treated with drugs purely used for malaria.
“I still have doubts in my mind and I need to be educated. What’s the difference between COVID-19 and malaria? Every drug we were given were malaria medications.
“A number of persons who tested positive were checked in reputable labs, hospitals in Abuja and were found to have malaria parasites in their bloodstreams. When did malaria become synonymous with COVID-19?” he queried.
