Drama as coronavirus patient attempts to escape Lagos centre


The 44-year-old Italian infected with Coronavirus, and quarantined at the Mainland Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, has attempted to escape from the isolation centre, reports SaharaReporters.

According to the report, he was disappointed at the ill-equipped facility and poor treatment he is being given at the Isolation centre.

The Italian also complained of not being fed well and not receiving proper medical attention, all of which culminated in his decision to abscond from the center.

“Where they kept him is a very uncomfortable place. They put him in just a room with no power supply, the room is not air-conditioned, mosquitoes are biting him and they are not feeding him,” the sources were quoted to have said.

According to the report, his attempt to abscond from the isolation centre was, however, not successful as personnel around the facility was able to stop him.

The Italian is the only confirmed case of the virus in Nigeria after he flew into the country on Monday, February 24. The online medium said it had exclusively reported that he was diagnosed with the disease in Ogun state before he was rushed to Lagos where he was kept in isolation.

It was also reported that the Italian made contact with many people within and outside the cement factory and at the hospital where he was rushed to for initial treatment.
