“It surprises many and myself that it took this long for me to contract #COVID19, I thought on many occasions that I had contracted it as I have been exposed on several occasions. Immediately some members of my family lost their sense of taste and smell, I knew I had been at risk and it is not surprising that I tested positive.
“I have been a little bit under the weather, but it is not a serious case. My advice to the public is that they should follow all #COVID19 safety protocols.
“Right now my voice is a bit coarse because I have active #COVID19 at the moment. However I am not that unwell and I am slowly getting better,” he wrote on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
