10 COVID – 19 patients die at National Hospital, Abuja
Ten coronavirus patients have so far died at the isolation centre of the National Hospital, Abuja.
The hospital’s spokesman, Dr Tayo Hastrup, disclosed this on Saturday.
He noted that the 10 persons who died at the centre had ‘serious underlining illness’.
Hastrup added that over 80 patients who earlier tested positive for COVID-19 at the hospital had fully recovered.
According to him, the hospital has a centre where patients with suspected cases of COVID-19 are kept, after which the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control is invited to come and take their samples.
“When it is confirmed that they are positive, we take them to our isolation centre,” he explained.
