The Borno State coronavirus (COVID-19) first index; has infected 26 people before he died last month at the University of Maiduguri Teaching

β€œCommittee members interacted with Medecine Sans Frontieres (MSF) Spain that is managing the Pulka clinic as well as community leaders and stakeholders.”

He said from all available evidence the committee received from its investigation, proved beyond reasonable doubts that Babangida Mohammed died of coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

While speaking on how Mohammed died, Dr Marte said: β€œWhen he first fell sick, the deceased was taking some medication at Pulka MSF clinic.

β€œWhen his health conditions deteriorated, they decided to take him to UMTH, Maiduguri in a commercial bus instead of an ambulance.

β€œAnd at that time; he was having severe complications of coughing, chest pain, high body temperature, fever and difficulty in breathing among others.”

He also noted that the committee at the UMTH discovered that Babangida Mohammad has infected 21 health workers and four of his relatives with COVID-19.

He added that one of his roommates at the hospital; was also tested positive.

Zulum, who was represented by his Deputy, Umar Kadafur, who doubles as COVID-19 response team Chairman, commended the committee for doing a thorough investigation.

He also assured the committee that the state government will study carefully all its recommendations and implement to check further spread of the deadly virus.
