No it is not coronavirus — Larry Madowo speaks after he was seen in an ambulance with a face mask

By Standard Reporter | February 7th 2020

BBC Africa Business Editor Larry Madowo was on Thursday taken ill in the US.

Madowo took to his social media pages to state that he had ended up in the ER.

In photos shared by the journalist, he had a face mask as he was being attended to inside an ambulance.

He quickly moved to dispel fears that he was suffering from the deadly coronavirus, describing his condition as a small complication.

“It’s all fun and games until you end up in the ER considering your own mortality. No, it wasn’t for coronavirus. And yes, I’ll live,” he wrote.

While some of his fans wished him quick recovery, others took issue with the fact that he had taken time to capture the moment on camera.

Technology is becoming an addiction, soon people will be taking selfies on their burial day!
