A man was reported to have died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, following complications of coronavirus.
Medical report about the deceased disclosed by an official of LUTH revealed that he was not only hypertensive and diabetic but also had chronic kidney disease and sepsis, The Caple reports.
The official added that the patient who died shortly after being admitted at the hospital concealed his travel history to Holland and that after his death, one of the tests conducted on him posthumously revealed that he had the virus, having had contact with persons residing overseas.
Upon his demise, the family of the 55-year-old man later admitted that their relative had COVID-19 infection but decided to be silent about it because they were afraid that the hospital will reject him if his health status was revealed.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the raging novel coronavirus, COVID-19, had been not known to be a respecter of social, political or financial/economic status.
Top political leaders across the world, influential businessmen, respected sportsmen and women, entertainers and the general masses have all been infected with COVID-19. Nigeria's case is not different as well.
Since the confirmation of the index case via an Italian on Thursday, February 27, top political leaders in the country have tested positive for the virus.
After President Muhammadu Buhari's chief of staff, Abba Kyari tested positive for COVID-19 days after returning from Germany, the entire political leadership became worried and had to start testing for the virus.
The position of the chief of staff is very crucial, indicating that many political leaders might have met with Kyari after his Germany trip and got exposed to the virus.
Legit.ng highlighted Nigerian state governors who had tested for the virus; those whose results came out positive and those who tested negative.
The COVID-19 test became important for the governors after one of them, whom they were exposed to during a meeting, later tested positive for the virus.
