Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has confirmed that he has taken vegetables (carrots), black seed oil, honey, and vitamin C as he battles Coronavirus infection during his isolation time.
The governor revealed on March 30 that he had tested positive for Coronavirus and was moving to isolation. On Sunday, April 5, he took his Twitter handle to reveal that he had been negative after a set of tests.
“My very good friend and brother, Dr. Muyideen Olatunji is the one in charge of the primary healthcare for Oyo State. He came to me and said, look, I am going to send to you this black seed oil, it boosts immunity. So, I mixed it with honey and took one teaspoon in the morning and one in the evening.
So, there are local solutions to boost immunity. Our people should not fret. Just as I’ve been able to get the virus out of my system, so will it be for the majority of our people. I’ve lost a little bit of weight which I think is good. When you’re in isolation, the tendency is just to watch television and eat, I was eating amala. But I was also using the treadmill. It has also been a period to reflect and look at the programs, policies and the things we want to do for the people of Oyo state and also reflect on how the COVID-19 is going to affect us socially and economically.” he said
