• Maria revealed she tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently in Ghana, receiving treatment.
Former Big Brother Naija season 6 Shine Ya Eye star and ex-housemate, Maria Benjamin Chike, has been hospitalized in Ghana, following a health issue.
Maria revealed in a post that she tested positive for Covid-19, on her arrival into the West African country.
This is coming few days after Maria, in a post, cried out over the unfair treatment being meted on her by Ghanaian authorities, after she arrived the country from Dubai.
The reality star claimed that Ghanaian authorities unlawfully detained her, as a result of vaccination uncertainty.
However, four days later, Maria took to her Instagram story, to open up that she has tested positive for Covid-19, and is currently on quarantine in Ghana.
She thanked her supporters and well-wishers who have been reaching out, assuring them that she’s fine, and will have to remain in Ghana until she tests negative for the Covid-19.
Maria’s post read, “MY HEARTBEATS, I HEARD YOU WERE ALL CONCERNED ABOUT ME. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR KIND MESSAGES. UNFORTUNATELY, I HAVE TESTED POSITIVE TO COVID-19 BUT I CAN REASSURE YOU I AM DOING REALLY WELL.
“I INITIALLY HAD A NEGATIVE RESULT FROM DUBAI LESS THAN 24 HOURS OF COMING INTO GHANA, UPON ARRIVAL INTO GHANA.I TESTED POSITIVE AND WAS ASKED TO QUARANTINE, I GOT A DIFFERENT DOCTOR THAT TESTED ME NEGATIVE AGAIN.
“WE HAD SO MANY BACK AND FORTH RESULTS OF POSITIVES AND NEGATIVES. BUT FINALLY I HAVE TESTED POSITIVE. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE COVID FOR GRANTED AND DON’T TRY TO BE AS STUBBORN AS MYSELF ALWAYS.
“I HAVE BEEN PLACED IN THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE AND RECEIVING TREATMENT. I WILL BE IN GHANA UNTIL I AM FULLY RECOVERED AND TESTED NEGATIVE. I LOVE YOU ALL AND CAN NOT WAIT TO GET BACK TO WORK.”
Maria’s colleagues and co-reality stars, Pere, Liquorose, as well as others, have sent a quick recovery messages to her, as they assured her of their prayers.
