In Edo: Policeman Dies Of COVID-19

A 57-year-old policeman in Edo has died from complications of Coronavirus, bringing the number of COVID-19 deaths in the state to two.

According to the Commissioner for Health in the state, Patrick Okundia, Edo currently has 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19 of which six are active cases.

He said, “We had an unfortunate situation of a 57-year-old police officer, who passed on yesterday (Tuesday). 



“It is not very clear how he got the infection but he developed some illnesses. Initially, there was no evidence of suspicion of Coronavirus disease but when the symptoms started getting worse, he was treated at the police clinic.

“About two days before he died, our surveillance team was called to have a look and it was in that process that they took his sample and sent it to the laboratory, while he continued with his drugs. He was consequently placed on self-isolation.

“However, the result came out positive. Before we could get to his house to move him out, the man had died.” Saharareporters
