The Edo State Government on Wednesday confirmed the death of another COVID-19 patient in the state, bringing the number of deaths in the state to two.

The Commissioner for Health in the state, Patrick Okundia, who confirmed the development, described the death of the patient as unfortunate.

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 or 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.”

“It is really unfortunate, as the result came after the man had died.”

The State has 15 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with seven discharged and two deaths recorded while six active cases are in isolation centres.
