Jimoh also recalled how a young man who only had his boxers on, died on the floor of the Lagos Island general hospital because “hospitals are stressed”. He tweeted;

”Stay at home or be extremely cautious. I have seen 7 people die in a space of 14 hours. A man died in his car, another was brought in the afternoon, died at night. It’s no fucking joke. Relaxing this lockdown is the worst idea anyone could conceive. The daily cases occurring is more than the capacity of the isolation centres in Lagos combined.

Secondly the daily cases aren’t daily per se and the results don’t often come out immediately, there’s a lag. Health care officials are doing the most. The hospitals are stressed, this is the worst time to fall ill or catch a serious flu, you’d be turned away, and serve around till you probably die.

This was the case in Lagos Island general hospital. A young man died on the bare floor with just boxers on, the only treatment he was given was “FANTA”. The hospitals are stressed. We are on our own. Stay safe!”
