Hospital mgt allegedly rejects monkeypox patient

TheT management of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, (UBTH) has allegedly rejected a patient suffering from monkeypox infection, a source has confirmed.


A relative of the patient who pleaded anonymity said he was shocked to read in the papers that the hospital had admitted a patient in the isolated centre created for possible MonkeyPox outbreak.


“I read reports of suspected Monkey Pox  patient been admitted to UBTH with surprise.


“For the record, when we took our brother there [hospital] on Monday, we were driven away by some medical personnel at the accident and emergency ward on account that they don’t have facilities to cater for Monkey Pox patients.


“So, I have this question for UBTH management: Is it our brother that they chased away that is now in their facility receiving treatment.


“Except of course, they have another patient over there. And​ if we are to go by that, would they have rejected my brother on Tuesday on account of no facility and admitted another in their supposed Monkey Pox isolated complex?,” he queried.


But Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Mr. Uwaila Joshua, said the information about a rejected patient was strange to the hospital management.


Mr. Uwaila stated that the hospital management was not aware that any patient with possible monkeypox disease was rejected..


He said there was no tension at the hospital owing to the report of a patient with monkeypox being admitted at the hospital.


His words, “Nobody is evacuating anybody. I don’t know whose purpose that is being served. The whole place is clam. Everything is normal.”
