As shared by a social media user Dr Kell.Read what she wrote below...


A concerned colleague and friend.
NYSC 2015 Batch A CORPER MEDICAL DOCTOR AND A NURSE SUSPECTED TO HAVE DIED OF LASSA FEVER IN ZONKWA,KADUNA.
The serving corper DR KELECHI OGBOJI until his demise was serving at St Louis Hospital Zonkwa LGA.The young, vibrant and hardworking Ebonyi state university (EBSU) trained medical doctor who did housemanship at FMC Abeokuta was said to have attended to a very sick patient rushed into their facility on account of high grade fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, weakness amid other symptoms. They cautiously resuscitated the patient and referred to Jos as they obviously suspected Lassa fever.
Few days later, the doctor and his nurse both fell ill with high fever and similar symptoms and were admitted in the same hospital on Tue 16/2/16. Dr Kelechi died on Fri 19/2/16 while the nurse died a day before him,18th.
Details of what they were being treated for while on admission still unknown and it appears the appropriate bodies are yet to make urgent probe into this unfortunate incidence.
May their souls rest in peace. Amen
