Odunews.com had earlier reported that Dokpesi recovered from the disease two weeks after testing positive alongside seven members of his household.
In a short video making rounds on the social media however, the media mogul stated that he was treated with malaria drugs while at the Abuja Isolation centre.
He said, “I still have doubts in my mind and I need to be educated. What’s the difference between COVID-19 and malaria? Every drug we were given were malaria medications.
“A number of persons who tested positive were checked in reputable labs, hospitals in Abuja and were found to have malaria parasites in their blood streams. When did malaria become synonymous with COVID-19?”, he added.
Remdesivir, an antiviral medication, has largely been used in different countries to treat COVID-19 patients.
However, Remdesivir is limited in supply, a situation that has caused countries to seek alternative antidotes.
