“Dear RT. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi,
“I am writing on behalf of myself and family in regards to the 70-year-old woman suspected of the Covid -19 in Enugu published on Saturday 14th March 2020.
“The patient who is my mother, unfortunately, passed away on Sunday 15th March 2020 having tested negative to the aforementioned virus. She returned to Nigeria on Wednesday 11th March 2020 after 5 months trip to the UK to visit her children.”
Above were the parts of the statement posted online by the family of the suspected Coronavirus patient in Enugu State who tested negative for the deadly virus.
It should be recalled that a certain woman, age, 70, causes stirs at the University Teaching Hospital Enugu, on Saturday, after she showed up at the hospital for check-up, on sighting the woman who just came back from UK, the health workers scamper to safety following lack of safety gears in the hospital.
Reacting, the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) weighed in and collected the sample blood of the woman who was isolated at ESUTH Colliery Parklane and the result came out negative.
However, the 70yrs old woman, (name withheld) died a day after the result came out negative.
The cause of her death according to the statement shared online by the family is due to the kind of treatment at the isolation centre and the kind of environment she was kept during the few days she was isolated.
“My mother was isolated in a dilapidated environment that seems to have been left uninhabitable over a long period of time. The isolation center in Enugu is an abandoned old section of the hospital, where the grass and debris were being cleared whilst my mother was there”, says the statement.
