A medical doctor in private practice reportedly died on Wednesday at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos mainland.
51-year-old Chugbo Emeka died of coronavirus-related complications which he developed from treating an infected patient in a hospital. He was rushed to LUTH on Monday.
The Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee of the hospital, Prof Wasiu Adeyemo, said: “The doctor is not a LUTH staff; he was a private practitioner, though he trained in LUTH some 18, 20 years ago. .
One of his classmates called me that he has some issues in his private hospital, so I asked that he should be brought to LUTH. He was COVID-19 positive, we put him on drugs but unfortunately, he died.”
