COVID-19: Edochie narrates ordeal, says it damaged his lungs

One of the sons of veteran Nollywood actor Pete Edochie, Uche, has narrated his COVID-19 ordeal. According to him, he spent over 6 million Naira on his treatment of COVID-19 in Nigeria, and it has affected his lungs. 

The visual artist took to his Instagram page to make the revelation. He said that when he first contracted the virus, he thought it was malaria. 

When I fell sick weeks ago, I thought I had malaria, so I spent the first couple of weeks treating malaria,” Uche Edochie wrote. 

He was later admitted into the isolation treatment facility in Gbagada, Lagos, and he didn’t fail to talk about how expensive getting the required treatment was.

Continuing, he wrote: “Curing COVID-19 costs a fortune too and that is a problem. That is often why people die. The facility where I was treated charges N350,000 a day. I was there for twelve days before being moved to First Cardiology Centre in Ikoyi for my lung and heart rehabilitation.

“Total cost of my treatment so far has exceeded six million naira. I know a guy whose covid treatment cost seventeen million naira.

“Governments must invest in affordable treatment or more and more people will die. Affordable treatment is our last line of defense.

“We have tried lock downs, masks and vaccines and COVID-19 is still spreading. Even the vaccinated are still catching COVID-19. [sic]”

Uche Edochie is the second son of the Pete Edochie family and he was born in 1975. He has been married to his wife, Nkechi Nwosu-Igbo, for 16 years. He is a Nigerian contemporary painter, interior designer, photographer and entrepreneur.
