A Nigerian woman reportedly slumped and died after hearing that her husband tested positive for coronavirus.
The incident was said to have occurred at Igho Salami Street, Uloho Avenue, in Ughelli north local government area of Delta state on Monday, June 29, The Nation reported.
A source said the deceased, Mrs Oregbe, was at home when the news of her husband's sample result was announced.
But soon as she learned that her husband had contracted the virus, she reportedly slumped and died before she could be rushed to the hospital.
“I am sure she has been managing high blood pressure before now because as soon as she was told her husband tested positive, she slumped and died before they could rush her to the hospital, the source said.
The sudden death of the woman has thrown the community in a state of mourning.
Meanwhile, the minister of foreign affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has done well in containing the spread of coronavirus in the country.
