COVID-19 continues to ravage the continent affecting all viable economic activities. Kenya is experiencing a second wave that is even worse then than the first one. Infection rates have skyrocketed in the country. The death rate are also on a high. As the country continues to grapple with the new reality, many celebrities and public figures have tested positive for the virus and are coming out pleading with the people to remain carefully as the disease is real. The latest one to test positive of the virus is Sauti Soul's Bien.
Bien Aime has confirmed that he is in quarantine after testing positive for the deadly COVID-19 virus. Confessing his experience, Bien said that it began as a fever and his joints ached. He also experienced vision problems. He said, "For the last few days, I have been indoors. I recently started feeling weak and so I decided since I was travelling to Uganda, I needed the tests done before, only for me to test positive."
He went on to state the measures he has taken to fight the virus. He said, "I will be at home for a while since I do not want to spread it. Corona will get anyone so long as we do not adhere to the said measures." However, he adds that his wife tested negative. He went on to urge people to be cautious of the virus as anyone can get it. "We had a show in Uganda last week on Thursday. I had to cancel my presence, but my boys, Nviiri and Benzoyl, represented us and did a good show," he said.
He also stated that COVID-19 treatment is expensive for anyone who gets it. So people should be careful. "To be honest, I have not been sick for a long time. I feel the treatment itself is very expensive, even for me. I have used Sh8,000 on medicines alone. Our healthcare system does not cushione us, so if you happen to contract it, you may end up spending too much money on treatement from your pockets. It could be worse since it could even kill you."
He also pleaded with the government to help artists out since most of them are suffering since they cannot hold any show. Bien also had a few words on how to prevent contracting the corona virus. He said, "Make sure your standards in cleanliness is too notch before and even during the shows or in public. Put all the measures in place since corona might be with us for a long time."
We at Opera News Hub wish Bien a quick recovery.
