Ekiti State has announced the death of a 29-year-old health worker, who was the third index case of coronavirus in the state.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, who made this disclosure in Ado Ekiti at a press conference, said the woman died on Wednesday around 6:58 am at the Intensive Care Unit of Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido Ekiti.
“The woman showed signs of stability on Monday but unortunately her condition deteriorated yesterday and we lost her exactly 6.58am today (Wednesday),” she stressed.
“We are going to liaise with the family on her burial. We are going to consider safety despite that there was assumption that the virus is not active in corpse, because we don’t know much about the virus.
“But whatever we are going to do won’t be against the interest of the family. But let me assure you that the state will also be on the side of safety”, she stated.
