Dubai Returnee Who Died Was Not COVID-19 Positive– Prof Abayomi



Professor Akin Abayomi, Lagos State Commissioner for Health, has disclosed that the Nigerian returnee who recently died in one of the state isolation facility, was not COVID-19 positive. This he revealed to debunk reports in the media implying that the patient died of coronavirus. The commissioner revealed this on Thursday via his official twitter handle. He said, “I hereby inform the general public that the Nigerian who recently returned from Dubai as part of a group of returnees who were placed in a #COVID19 isolation program in Lekki, developed complications and was transferred to one of our facilities where he died. “Because of the sudden nature of his demise and without any prior knowledge of his multiple preexisting conditions it was presumed to be a #COVID19 related death “This presumptive attribution is a precaution to ensure the safe clinical management of the patient and subsequent handling of the corpse. “The definitive #COVID19 gold standard test has turned out to be negative for the #COVID19 infection and his death is no longer considered to have been attributable to #COVID19.”
