A Twitter user has come online to narrate a drama that took place in a community on the Lagos Island after a COVID-19 patient died while the members of NCDC were about to take him for isolation and the family refused to allow the team to take his corpse away, OYOGist.com reports.
A Twitter user with the handle @Nerdy_Dopey has narrated the account of how members of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) came to transfer a COVID-19 patient in Badore, Ajah in Lagos to an isolation center but the patient died before he could be transferred.
The family of the deceased then decided that they would be burying their loved on the traditional way, which is against the NCDC guidelines for burying corpses of positive COVID-19 patients.
The situation led to disagreements with the family members literally physically dragging the corpse of the COVID-19 patient with the NCDC staffs. The user further revealed the those family members were not wearing any PPE’s but the NCDC members were fully protected with their PPE’s on.
Some users have blamed the decision of the NCDC to allow the Federal Government to bury the late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari the traditional way for encouraging the family to disagree with the NCDC.
