He said that he took ART tests repeatedly but they all came out negative, and he then decided to take a blood test after rashes started appearing on his body yesterday.

His suspicions were confirmed, he had contracted dengue from several days ago.

Here is what he said on Facebook

Had muscle aches last Saturday, and thought I must have over exerted during my exercises. As the aches persisted, I took ART tests repeatedly but all turned out negative.

Yesterday, rashes started to appear all over my arms and body. I decided to take a blood test and results confirmed my suspicion – I had contracted dengue, from several days ago.

Platelet count is slightly lower than normal but not too bad. Doctor said I have somehow endured through the illness and may well be on my way to recovery. Just have to make sure I stay hydrated.

It’s dengue season – so do be careful. Aedes mosquitoes breed in clean water, usually in homes, on the balconies and along the corridors.

So get rid of stagnant water, consider using repellant sprays or swatters to keep the mozzies away.

Will take it easy during this long weekend and let my body rest. Take care everyone!
