‘Why COVID-19 Patient In Lagos Died’

The Lagos State Government has ascribed the death of a 55-year-old Nigerian to the strong immune suppression drugs he was taking and his inability to provide full account of his travel history. 

The Nigerian died from COVID-19 related complications at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).  Announcing the first COVID-19 death in Lagos on Saturday, April 4, Prof Akin Abayomi, the Commissioner for health, said the man, whose identity was not revealed, had a kidney transplant seven years ago, adding that he was also diabetic.

  The kidney transplant, he explained, was the reason behind his strong immune suppression drugs.
