Heartbreaking: Young Nigerian man allegedly dies while crying out for oxygen in Ogun state coronavirus isolation centre without receiving any help!

“(Give me) Oxygen…. Don’t let me die”



No ventilator was given to the young man at the isolation centre managed by the Nigerian National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

In the video, he is heard asking for oxygen, saying: “Oxygen… Don’t let me die.” But no doctor or nurse is seen attending to him, and he is not given a ventilator either! The video is clear evidence of the grave challenges the Nigerian government and the NCDC are facing in managing the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.

Some Nigerians have also accused the federal government of corruption and mismanagement of funds, especially funds donated by private individuals, corporate organizations, foreign organizations and other countries to help Nigeria effectively fight and overcome the coronavirus pandemic.

Such alleged corruption and mismanagement of funds, critics of the Nigerian federal government say, is responsible for the abandonment or underdevelopment of the Nigerian health sector, low level of covid-19 testing in Nigeria, lack of commitment towards the search for an indigenous cure for covid-19, which result in the poor state of the health system in Nigeria, lack of ventilators and proper personal protective equipment (PPE) for doctors and nurses and other health workers in Nigeria’s covid-19 isolation centres. These are some of the reasons for avoidable deaths from coronavirus in Nigeria.

The 25-year-old man was said to have contracted coronavirus from his friend. He reportedly passed on at 5:30am today. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
