Amid the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increased number of new cases, some Nigerians are still puzzled as to whether the virus is real or not. Reno Omokri has however craved the indulgence of Nigerians to be more careful as the virus is real.
Taking to his Instagram page, the political activist said it is not a thing of shame for someone to die from COVID-19 and if anybody’s relative should die from such, they should openly disclose so as to help people in doubt believe and be more responsible health-wise.
According to him;
“If your relatives die from #COVID19, please don’t hide it. Corona Virus is not a sexually transmitted disease. It can affect anyone. There is nothing to be ashamed about. And most importantly, announcing the cause will make Doubting Thomases know the virus is NOT a scam! Let their death achieve something good.”
Back tracking to how Nigeria’s popular singer and multi-talented instrumentalist Fela Kuti died from AIDS and how his family openly disclosed the cause of his death which helped people in doubt believe, Reno said families of people who have died from COVID-19 should do same as it will help people be more aware and safety conscious.

“Many people thought HIV/AIDS was a scam until Fela Kuti died. His family’s decision to reveal that he died from complications related to AIDS, made doubters believe and caused them to become more sexually responsible.” He said.
