A TikTok influencer has been slammed for visiting Rwanda as she allegedly tested positive for coronavirus.
Charly Jordan was tested for the bug as she arrived in the country, forcing her to quarantine, reports Jezebel.
The star was shocked and took to social media to speak out about her experience, claiming she had the disease "three and a half months ago" and her doctors said "she couldn't get it again."
Charly, who has 3.3 million followers on Instagram and nearly 2 million on TikTok, said in a video shared online: "Literally the f******g [Rwandan] government showed up at my place and dragged me away from everyone I was with.
“I don’t speak the language, and they came and locked me in this f*****g room.”
According to dramatic videos uploaded by the star, she visited the country "to do charity work with gorillas."
The social media star also said she had taken “a hundred thousand tests” before travelling to the "developing country."

She was put in a hotel room after authorities found she apparently had coronavirus, it was reported.
Jordan continued: “It’s really scary. I don’t know why I have it again. I’m not with anyone I know, and I’m in f*****g Rwanda, Africa, and I don’t know how long I’m gonna be here, and they won’t tell me anything.”
The influencer had to remain in quarantine for four days and underwent two more tests which tested her negative for coronavirus.
It was concluded the initial test was a false positive, and she was allowed to leave the hotel room.
However, she faced backlash for travelling during the pandemic.
On Sunday September 6, she posted a video on Instagram apologising for travelling.
She said: “I’m completely in the wrong for doing that, and I have learned my less one hundred percent."
