Calling it a “not great experience”, Toke said that she had symptoms like loss of smell and getting tired easily.

“I tested positive for Covid-19 and my experience wasn’t great [I mean it’s Covid-19]. Shooting this vlog was tons as I’m not 100% yet but I’m hopeful the worst days are behind me.”

Toke went on to state how real Covid-19 is, warning people of a second wave of the deadly pandemic.

She said she didn’t know where she caught the virus or from whom.

“Covid-19 is real guys. there’s a second wave of the virus in town and it’s spreading really fast. I can’t say needless to say where I caught it but the worst thing on behalf of me was contacting tracing.

“Having to call people I even have been exposed to, to inform them to quarantine and trace people they need also been exposed to. the entire thing may be a mess.”

Toke said she was sharing her experience on the vlog because the road to recovery is “a lot”.

“I am tired all the time, I even have a touch of amnesia and I’m trying to seek out out what day is what.”

Covid is real guys, there is a second wave of the virus 🦠 in town and it is spreading really fast. I can’t say for sure where I caught it but the worst thing for me was contact tracing. Having to call people I have been exposed to, to tell them to quarantine and trace people they have also been exposed to, the whole thing is a mess. I share my experience on the Vlog today which is late I know but pls be patient with me, the road to recovery is a lot, I am tired all the time, I have a bit of memory loss and I’m trying to find out what day is what 🤣🤣🤣🤣.
