Drama unfolds as doctors and nurses run away after suspected coronavirus case

Reports gathered that doctors and nurses at the General hospital Gbagada have eloped after they suspected four white men who were rushed to the hospital had coronavirus.

It was gathered that the four white men were rushed to the hospital at midnight with coronavirus symptoms.

On sighting them, the Nurses ran away saying ‘this is coronavirus! Coronavirus is not my portion. God forbid! Here is not IDH (Infectious Disease Hospital), Yaba, please go there. Where is security? Security, please come and send these people out of this place.’

A witness said ” “So, when they got to the emergency ward, nurses and doctors on duty came out to attend to them. But upon getting to the vehicle, they noticed that the four occupants were whites with one of them critically ill and coughing uncontrollably. Immediately the nurses and doctors saw them, they all took to their heels.”

“Some of the nurses began to shout ‘this is coronavirus! Coronavirus is not my portion. God forbid! Here is not IDH (Infectious Disease Hospital), Yaba, please go there. Where is security? Security, please come and send these people out of this place. When the screaming became too much, some of the security guards on duty that day summoned courage from afar and ordered them out of the hospital, because they too were afraid and they drove out. They were not allowed to come down from their vehicle” he added.
