‘Everyone got through it somehow’ he said.

In his opinion, we might have seen our own phase of the Coronavirus which went by silently because no one was testing specifically for the Covid-19 virus. Instead, they just got reports of Malaria or typhoid.

‘I find it difficult to believe that Coronavirus did not come to Africa first because Africa is their usual testing ground for anything they want to spread’ he said ‘and right now, every evidence shows that it was weaponized by a certain group of people’ Toka McBaror said.

He says if his theory is correct, then the worst is behind us and so, no one should panic.

‘Let’s stay in our houses, stay safe, keep your family safe, keep your loved ones safe but don’t panic’
