Leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has revealed that he suffers from psychological COVID-19 infection syndrome.

Gabby disclosed that the fear of contracting the virus keeps affecting his mental health.

According to him, although he has tested negative for COVID-19 on several occasions, he gets apprehensive when he starts showing flu-like symptoms.

Detailing the trauma he goes through daily in a Facebook post, the private legal practitioner said, “I hope I am not alone in this. Let me confess. I suffer from what I call psychological COVID-19 infection syndrome. Did I hear someone say: “ME TOO!!” Amen!”

“Even when I have tested negative, more than once through contact tracing, I imagine symptoms! To me, coronavirus is a fantasy prone virus. I say so because I have become more and more conscious of every little, probably imagined, headache, with my temperature still around 36 degrees,” he wrote.

Gabby said every imagined pain inside his throat, with every little ordinary normal itch, triggers a momentary panic, sometimes forgetting “I just had shito.”

“For a person who loves his ginger-spiced sobolo, I am used to the regular cough and sneeze after a few gulps, but so panicky has this become that I am even afraid to drink my beloved sobolo. Irony is that sobolo is supposed to rather help ones immune system,” he said.

Gabby is hoping for a vaccine for his “psychological Covid-19 infection syndrome”, saying “is there a vaccine for this maladaptive behaviour to fear of COVID-19? I am not joking oh! Gabby 3br3! And, I know I am not alone.”
