A Nigerian doctor on the frontline treating coronavirus patients in Edo state, has now tested positive to the virus.

Health workers on the frontline are at the highest risk of contracting the virus, and a doctor at the Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Edo State, has gotten the virus.

This was revealed by the President of the National Association of Resident Doctors, Dr. Aliyu Sokomba, in an interview with Channels TV.

Sokomba who was on the show to speak on the Health care system in Nigeria, said that at the moment, six doctors had died of Lassa fever while one unnamed doctor had been infected with COVID-19.

“At the moment, as health workers continue to play their part in containing the spread of the disease, the health workers are not protected. One of our colleagues died just yesterday from Lassa fever. This is the state of our health care institutions and that is the fate of most health care workers in the country.

Just yesterday again, one of our doctors in Irrua Specialist Hospital Irrua Edo State had tested positive for the COVID-19 disease. What that means is that these doctors that are testing positive to various diseases are being left alone to take care of themselves”
he disclosed

Sokomba disclosed that medical doctors in Nigeria have no form of insurance or compensation in the event of an unfortunate occurrence while on duty.

As it stands, Edo state has two confirmed cases of Coronavirus. The first is the speaker of the State House of Assembly, Frank Okiye.
