Rivers Residents Cry Out Over Unusual Rise In COVID-19 Cases

Residents of Rivers State have cried out to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Ministry of Health over unusual increase in COVID-19 related cases across the state.

The people alleged that patients in state-owned hospitals are indiscriminately added to the list of coronavirus cases even if they were diagnosed for malaria and Typhoid. 

Mr. Martin Okii, a resident of Port Harcourt said his brother was rushed to the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) last month and was treated for acute fever.  According to him, he was given a receipt bearing “COVID-19” at its top.

“When I got the receipt, I was surprised to see COVID-19 at its top right corner.  My brother was never tested positive to coronavirus disease”.

Mrs. Olina Clara recently lost her husband in UPTH after protracted cases of Pneumonia, malaria and typhoid.  Olina had a medical history of Pneumonia and was managing the condition until the issue became complicated by reason of malaria and typhoid.

He was rushed to UPTH in May 2020 and passed on hours later.  His corpse was held by the hospital authority on the ground that he was a COVID-19 patient and as such will be buried by the government.

Meanwhile, the people he had contact with before he died one month earlier are all alive today without any symptom of coronavirus.  His wife that took care of him till his last breathe is hale and hearty.

“The hospital authority said if he tested positive for the virus, the government will cease his corpse, but if otherwise the corpse will be released to the family for burial.

“The result came and it was negative, yet they held on to my husband’s corpse and even fixed a burial date for it”, Mrs Clara lamented.
