Nigerian Nurse Dies Of COVID-19 In Maiduguri Borno State

Some residents of Borno state are living in fear as a nurse died on Saturday at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital of suspected coronavirus.

The news of the death of the man, Babangida Buba, a retired nurse with the Hospital Management Board, Borno, created panic as it might be the first case of coronavirus death in the state.

The deceased after leaving the services of the state government joined Medecins Sans Frontieres otherwise called Doctors Without Borders and worked with the organisation in Pulka before he died.

Buba, an anaesthetic nurse, was rushed to Maiduguri from Pulka last week when his health condition deteriorated.

Some posts on the social media further stirred speculations that the deceased must have died of COVID-19.

A post on the social media by one of his colleagues read, “The first COVID-19 death has been recorded in the UMTH, Borno State.

“The deceased was admitted to the Medical Ward III last week and died under suspicious circumstances which led to a test being conducted on the corpse and the result came back positive for COVID-19.

“The bad thing is that he had contact with several health workers both within and outside the UMTH. He was brought from Pulka to the UMTH by two nurses who are also now at risk together with their families.”

    RIP brother! May you find solace and peace with our Lord Jesus Christ.
    God heal all those still battling with the virus, and God protect all the front liners in this pandemic.
    This shall come to pass.
