Why Many Rich Nigerians Died From COVID-19 – Health Minister Reveals

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, on Tuesday, said the Federal Government was disturbed that COVID-19 deaths came from many educated, well-to-do Nigerians who chose home-based care and were only rushed to hospitals after sudden complications, The PUNCH reports.

The minister, who stated this during the daily briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja, advised everyone who tested positive for COVID-19 to seek medical attention, and not use drugs without a doctor’s prescription.

Ehanire said five centres in the country were researching into possible COVID-19 drugs. He said chloroquine was one of such drugs.

The health minister said, “As we learn more about coronavirus every day, we must be ready to adjust our strategy, based on knowledge and evidence. As of Monday, we had sadly recorded 191 deaths in 26 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

“Even though this figure seems low compared to other countries, a disturbing picture emerging from the statistics is that not only are most fatalities linked with pre-existing diseases,   many are educated, well-to-do people, who chose home-based care, where they develop sudden complications and have to be rushed to hospital.

“Experience is showing that complications in COVID-19 patients can arise with little or no notice. This is an added reason why all persons should seek medical attention when they test positive.”

The minister said the ministry of health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control were assessing isolation centres across the country.

He added, “We have recently been in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, and Osogbo, Osun State. We  will continue providing diagnostic commodities and facilities in collaboration with partners.”
