- A Facebook user identified as Sunny Nwokeoma Ihenemegwa has shared a disturbing photo online
- In the photo, a hen can be seen laying eggs on a hospital bed
- Sunny claims that the hospital is located in Imo, emphasizing the sorry case of the health care facility in the eastern region
A Facebook user identified as Sunny Nwokeoma recently shared a mind-bogging photo on social media, where a hen can be seen laying eggs on a hospital bed. Sunny revealed that the photo was taken in Imo state, withholding the name of the hospital.
On the surface level, the photo shows how comfortable the hen is threading human territory. However, it also represents the disturbing state of the health care facility in the region. Counting it as one of the country's many failures, Nwokeoma stated that only in Nigeria can such a thing happen, where a bed meant for sick patients is abandoned to such low levels.
The photo which is gradually making waves on the internet also represents the struggling level of health care in a country that houses over 180 million people.
Reports have revealed that out of 73,000 registered doctors in the country, 38,000 are practicing abroad. Ultimately leaving only 35,000 to carter for millions of people.
Truth be told, it's most likely why such photo of a hen laying eggs will take over the internet and such incidence remind Nigerians that as far as health care goes, we still have a long way to go.
The association argues that revamping the sector would spare Nigerians the hassles of travelling abroad on medical tourism.
