Kenyan comedian popularly known as David The Student has tested positive for COVID-19 days after an encounter with a racist couple who refused to wear masks.
Through a post on his Facebook page, the comedian stated that he had been feeling sick and exhibited the symptoms associated with the deadly virus.
“I got diagnosed with COVID-19. Now I am quarantined and I trust and believe I’ll get through this. Thank you all for the support I’ve been receiving. Thank you! Please stay safe, wear a mask, wash your hands and social distance,” he wrote.
Last week, in a video that went viral, the comedian narrated an encounter with a racist couple while being their driver.
David picked the couple up as a Lyft driver and was expected to drop them at their destination.
However, when he asked them to put on their masks as a measure to combat the spread of Coronavirus, they became violent.
In an interview with local US media, David intimated that the first thing that came to his mind was to record the whole incidence for fear of having the scenario flipped on him.
“For me I was just thinking, get what exactly happened as they are going to flip this thing on me and make it look like I attacked them,” he says.
