Ace comedian and actor, Atunyota Akpobome better known as Ali Baba, on Monday, narrated his Covid battle, warning people to protect themselves by obeying all COVID-19 protocols.
The comedian, who shared his experience in a video posted on his verified Instagram page, said he spent last year’s Christmas at an undisclosed isolation centre.
Ali Baba warned that the second wave of the pandemic is deadlier than the first wave.
He said, “2020 was a tough year but we have made it through and God has kept us alive. Covid is real and my sympathies go to those who have lost loved ones.
“Please, be aware the next wave of Covid, the new strain that is around now is deadlier than the one that came before because it mutated.
“The people that are going about, carrying on like they don’t have Covid have Covid, they are asymptomatic and they will spread it to you. You may not have the immunity that some people have and as such, you may not be seeing it that this thing is killing.
“Let me tell you, people are dying every day. Those numbers you see are not fake.
“I spent all my Christmas in isolation. Covid is real. I was in Room 4 and I can tell you that from Room 1 to 5, the number of people that were taken out because they died. I have spoken with people who attended parties and two days later died. This Covid is real.
“If the G.O. (General Overseer) is wearing a mask and he is telling people to be careful, are you more prayerful than the G.O.? Anybody that tells you Covid is a scam, don’t listen to the person. Covid is killing and people are dying, you need to be careful and protect yourself.”
