A couple in the US, Elizabeth and Isaiah Linscott, have been put on a house arrest with ankle tags for refusing to self-isolate after testing positive to coronavirus.

Mirror UK reports that under the Kentucky law, infected people are to stay at home and call their authorities in case their situations worsened.

Elizabeth was not comfortable with signing. Isiah, on the other hand, commented on the sudden attention contracting the virus brought on them.

"I open up the door and there's like eight different people Five different cars and I'm like, 'What the heck's going on?' This guy's in a suit with a mask, it's the health department guy and he has three different papers for us. For me, her and my daughter,” he said.

The wife, on the other hand, wondered why the sudden interest in them, saying "we didn't rob a store, we didn't steal something, we didn't hit and run, we didn't do anything wrong."

Meanwhile, a Nigerian doctor with the Twitter handle @the_drterry said that days after he started showing symptoms for Coviid-19, his test result back positive.

He said that he went through the very hard symptoms like fever, throat pain, chest pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, chickenpox, among others.

The medical officer said the time was really a difficult one for his family, friends, coworkers, and the hospital where he works. @the_drterry said that he went through a tough time for 14 days before he tested negative for the virus.

He, therefore, advised everyone out there to be very careful by adhering to all safety rules like wearing face masks, regularly washing hands, and staying away from public gatherings.
