Read The Following Passage Carefully And Answer The Questions That Follow.

The first time John heard the word “stigmatization” was during a Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A.) meeting held at Rightway International School. The headteacher being the main speaker spoke on the theme: “The effects of stigmatization”
During that special day, members of the society including parents and major stakeholders came in their large numbers because of how COVID-19 has affected members of the community. The speaker encouraged the relatives and the community members to accept those who recovered from COVID-19 as full members of society because they were safe to live with them. He added that accepting them would help him recover more quickly.
After the meeting, members of the society were so happy they saw their relatives once again and promise not to stigmatize them but rather take very good care of them to recover more quickly. John was moved and decided to support them. He discussed his intention with his colleagues. Later, some of his colleagues started calling him names. There was even rumour in the community that his real parents died of COVID-19. Cheerfully, John turned a deaf ear to this rumour.
Agakpe was one of the boys who always made fun of John’s effort to help those who recovered from COVID-19. One day, unfortunately for Agakpe , he was tested positive for the COVID-19 virus which made him spend over four months in the hospital. It was John who supported his family to pay all his medical bills. When he finally recovered, he apologized to John and promise to help him fight against stigmatization.
