Influencer Who Traveled To Rwanda Says She Was Locked up for 4 Days After a False Positive COVID Test | 22 Words

A video has gone viral of a famous influencer who says she was locked up in Rwanda after a false positive COVID test, and, after seeing the clips, Twitter has something to say about the whole thing...

A popular influencer has had an experience she'll never forget last week.

After traveling to Rwanda, TikTok and Instagram star, Charly Jordan, created a series of TikToks which sparked a huge response online.

The pandemic has severely impacted travel.

With many people being told to simply stay put.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people from the US avoid nonessential travel to most countries.

With infection rates still high, Rwanda is one of only thirty countries currently open with restrictions to US citizens.

But Jordan says she was traveling to Rwanda to work with gorillas through an animal-conservation group.

The star claims that she had tested negative for COVID-19 when she left the US, going on to say that her friends had all been wearing masks in public and following other safety measures since landing last Wednesday.

Her trip initially got off to a good start...

The star could be seen posting a video with silverback gorillas on Instagram, and videos of herself dancing and eating on TikTok. "Made it to Rwanda 🇷🇼🧡 and I couldn’t be more in love. The people, the food, the everything!" she wrote on one Instagram snap.

However, things very quickly changed...

Within just one day, her trip went completely downhill.

Jordan says she had no symptoms of the virus...

And claims she had already contracted it 3 months ago.

But, during her time in Rwanda...

She tested positive. "I got 100,000 tests afterward to make sure I was negative," she said in a TikTok over the weekend. "I flew to Rwanda, Africa, 5 days ago, and just got here, and tested positive."

The TikTok has now been set to private, but it was reshared on Twitter.

"Literally the f---ing government showed up at my place and dragged me away from everybody I was with," Jordan said. Don't worry, we've got the clip coming right up...

The star wrote over the video that she was taken away by people in hazmat suits.

"I don't speak the language, they locked me in this f---ing room, and I can't leave."

In the original clip, Jordan was visibly distressed.

"It's really scary. I don't know why I have it again," Jordan said. "I'm not with anyone I know, and I'm in f---ing Rwanda, Africa, and I don't know how long I'm going to be here, and they won't tell me anything."

In a follow-up TikTok that has also been removed, Jordan said she smokes marijuana every day for the past 3 1/2 years.

And that, as a result of being locked away in isolation, she was forced to go "cold turkey" in the hotel room. Jordan says she smokes the drug to help with her depression and anxiety.

The star claimed that as a result of the withdrawal, she began having "crazy" nightmares.

"Not only am I completely alone, locked in this room, but I'm having withdrawals and crazy nightmares and not sleeping," she said.

She continued:

"And all the food here is making me sick. So we are just all around not in a good place right now. I've literally just cried for 3 hours."

Jordan was allowed to leave isolation after 4 days when 2 more tests came back negative.

But, it turns out that the first test was a false positive. “I just got my second test results back and they’re negative which means their first test was wrong. They were wrong this whole time. I can leave!" she said in a TikTok.

Jordan said she wanted to "clear up some confusion" in an update posted to TikTok on Monday.

"Whether you think I should or should not have been traveling is your own opinion," she said. "But I want you to know I did everything by the books in accordance to the Rwandan and US government to make this a safe trip."

She continued:

"People are allowed to make their own opinions, but I just wanted to give you guys the facts of what actually happened," she said.

Despite the ordeal, Jordan has since apologized for traveling during the pandemic.

Admitting she was, "completely in the wrong for doing that." "I would like to make an apology for traveling during this time, because I know that it’s a very incorrect time to travel, and I’m completely in the wrong for doing that, and I have learned my lesson one hundred percent."

After viewing the videos...

Reactions have been fairly mixed.

The original TikTok, which you can watch below, has since been re-shared to Twitter.

“Trust me. I’ve been sitting here in this room, locked in this room for the past 4 days thinking about it, and I will not be traveling anymore during this time," the star later said.

And, you can watch the follow up Tiktok here.

Looks like Jordan won't be doing any traveling any time soon. For more like this, scroll on to see the moment a surfer with coronavirus gets dragged away by people in hazmat suits.
