How I Spent Over N6m To Treat Covid-19 Virus - Edochie

Uche Edochie, son of Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has revealed how he spent over N6 million to save his life from the deadly COVID-19 virus while undergoing treatment at an isolation facility in Gbagada, Lagos State.

The younger Edochie who took to his Instagram page @ucheedochie to share and announce his recovery experience stated that the total cost of his treatment had exceeded N6 million, and that many people died of the virus because of the high cost associated with its treatment.

“COVID costs a fortune and I know a guy whose treatment cost N17 million.

“When I fell sick weeks ago, I thought I had malaria, so I spent the first couple of weeks treating malaria.

“By the time I realised this could be something else, it was too late and I was rushed to the hospital with eighty per cent of my lungs damaged.

“I couldn’t eat or breathe and I was on oxygen for weeks; I could not walk either, including having severe chest pains.

“It felt like I was dying and waking up over and over again, I have never seen anything like this,” Uche said.

He also said it was the first time in his life that he had no control over anything.

“I felt like I was on a boat drifting away in the still of the night rudder less.

“The days that followed passed by slowly and everything was a blur and I remember lying in the hospital floating endlessly like a feather in an abyss of nothing.

“The days turned to weeks and my recovery was going well. I am fully cured of COVID now and I am able to walk a little,” he said.

He added that his lungs would take months to heal completely, but he was currently on oxygen and other medications.

He urged governments to invest in affordable treatments, to prevent more people from dying of the virus, while lamenting that in spite of the lockdown, wearing of nose masks and vaccines, the virus was still spreading.

“Even those vaccinated are still catching it, but thank God I am back home,” he said.

He thanked his family members and healthcare workers for their incredible support, saying, “In all these people, I saw the face of God and I will never forget.

This occurred while the crew was filming in the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where Hutchins had to be transported by helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she was eventually confirmed dead.

Santa Fe County sheriff’s office said Souza was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Centre in Santa Fe, where he received emergency treatment for his injuries.

In a statement, the sheriff’s office said the cinematographer and director “were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, producer, and actor.”

The Santa Fe New Mexican reported that Baldwin was questioned by investigators and was in tears.

We will be providing counselling services to everyone connected to the film as we work to process this awful event.”
