COVID-19: Disquiet at UITH over patient's death
At the moment, there is seeming disquiet at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, (UITH) over the death of Fellow Chartered Accountant, Alhaji Jimoh Raufu Muideen, who was admitted at the Accident and Emergency Unit on Wednesday and eventually died on Thursday.
Although, the circumstances that led to his death is yet to be disclosed but due to the fact that the deceased had travel history to the United Kingdom recently where he attended his child’s graduation.
ROYAL NEWS reports that in reaction to the incidence, a section of the UITH has been sharing a message on WhatsApp social media platform.
Dear Members,
A patient with symptoms of food poisoning who was said to have been on self isolation for 13 days following his return from the UK (hence, suspected case of COVID-19) was admitted yesterday and died at the Medical Emergency ward today, Thursday 2nd April, 2020.
In the spirit of proactiveness by the management of the hospital, the Medical Emergency has been shut down and the process of fumigation has been initiated.
Close contacts of the patient (doctors and nurses that attended to him and his family members) have started self-isolation while we await possible confirmation of COVID-19.
We strongly advise you all to ensure you are well protected with the full PPE kit while attending to ANY patient because all patients are potential carriers of this highly contagious virus.
It is our earnest hope that our staff will always be protected from this deadly virus.
 UITH MDCAN Secretary, ILORIN KWARA STATE
