COVID-19 Survivor’s Daughter Stoned In Upper East Region

Matilda says she now ignores her neighbours

Matilda, a pregnant COVID-19 survivor in the Upper East Region has revealed that her daughter was stoned and called a “coronavirus child” by other children.

Her ordeal began on March 28 when she got a sore throat and had to go the hospital.

According to her, she couldn’t take water nor any food. When she went to the hospital, her sample was taken and tested for coronavirus. The result of the test turned positive.

“I wasn’t bothered. I looked to God,” she said.

Her daughter who tested negative for the virus had to stay at home while she was quarantined for a month.

“She told me that children stoned her and told her that she’s a ‘coronavirus child’ and that she should be indoors,” Matilda revealed.

“I started worrying about her. People were sitting under the trees watching the children stone her. She had to run for her life.”

“At the beginning, when I came home, people weren’t treating me right.

“Now I stay home and don’t go out.

“My husband and my family – we chat, we do everything, they’re making me happier.

“It’s better I ignore [the neighbours]. When you listen to them as a pregnant woman – it’s not the best,” Matiled stated.
