Folks, just to let you know, I have tested POSITIVE for Covid-19. I'm doing Good..NO symptoms…and my Family is fine. All my close contacts have been informed. Right now I'm in self isolation. Many thanks to Royal Media Services Management for its Support. Stay SAFE & God Bless!
The journalist made a comeback on air on Wednesday, July 29, by hosting his popular JKL show from home.
According to Tuko News, Jeff who tested positive for COVID-19 about a week ago is still on treatment but can still go about his duties while quarantined at the confines of his home.
Well, his comeback was questioned by some of his fans who wondered why he looked all healthy and fine despite dealing with coronavirus. An angry Jeff could not let people with the aforementioned thoughts kill his vibe as he fired back in the best way possible.
The scribe confirmed indeed he had tested positive and could not get it why people do not believe he is sick.
”Welcome back to JKL, the home edition, working from home after testing positive for coronavirus about nine days ago. By the way doctor, a lot of people are tweeting tonight and are asking ‘Is this guy really sick? He does not look sick”’ Jeff said. Jeff asked if people wanted to see him in ICU or with drip lines or in a morgue for them to believe he is sick.
”Am I supposed to be on an IV drip in an ICU or in a morgue for people to realise I have COVID? What is wrong with people?,” he posed.
This comes about a week after the journalist made it public that he had tested positive for coronavirus. He revealed that he had gone into isolation after getting his results. The journalist also shared with the world that he received over 3,000 messages from fans who wished him quick recovery.
Here are some of the reactions from kenyans;
Jeff Koinange hosting a show while he is Coronavirus positive shows us clearly that we should not be stopped from running our daily activities by Covid-19.
We have already defeated Corona.
