LUTH gives details of what transpired with the Coronavirus patient who died at the hospital after withholding information about his travel history

The Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos, has confirmed the death of a patient from Coronavirus in the hospital.

Prof. Chris Bode, LUTH Chief Medical Director, made this known in a statement issued by Prof. Wasiu Adeyemo, Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) of LUTH, on his behalf.

He stated that the 55-year-old patient was brought unconscious to LUTH Emergency late in the evening of Thursday, April 2 by his friend.

“Although they denied any history of recent travel, his presentation strongly suggested Covid-19.

“He was handled professionally by the Infectious Diseases Consultant and his team without unduly exposing LUTH staff to danger. He died a few hours later. Bode said

“Further investigations later revealed he had earlier performed a test at Yaba soon after he travelled back to Nigeria from Holland and the test was positive.

“He was a known diabetic hypertensive patient. He also had a kidney transplant for chronic kidney disease and was on immunosuppressant drugs.

“The corpse has since been handed over to the appropriate Unit of the Lagos State Ministry of Health for safe burial according to international best practices.

“Our Department of Community Medicine has moved swiftly to trace, follow-up and and assist gallant staff who managed the patient,” Bode said.

He added that LUTH management implored all members of staff to continue observing strict standard protocols, while handling all patients as medical personnel are especially at increased risk from such undisclosed exposure.

“All efforts are being made to ensure the availability of all required items to continue the effective management of such cases that come to LUTH.

“Efforts are also in top gear to complete the isolation facility in LUTH for management of any possible spillover from the Yaba Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH), if the surge in patients’ load continues,” Bode said.
