Date Posted: 23/Jan/2021
The Jos University Teaching Hospital on Friday said at least 10 patients who were brought in for treatment after contracting COVID-19 had died in the hospital in the past one month.
 
The hospital’s Chief Medical Director, Prof Edmund Banwat, disclosed this in an interview with journalists in Jos. The CMD said, “The second wave of COVID-19 is a bit critical for us in the hospital more than what we had during the first phase.

“Between yesterday (Thursday) and today (Friday), we lost one patient. And between December and this January, we have lost over 10 patients in the hospital. There are also those who have recovered and are carrying on with their normal lives. But the truth is that the second wave came with much severity. Some of those who lost their lives have been in oxygen for an upward of two weeks before they passed on.”
 
Meanwhile, no fewer than three medical doctors and nine nurses have tested positive for COVID-19 at the Federal Medical centre, Jalingo, Taraba State. The hospital’s acting Head of Clinical Services, Dr. Ishaya Kwala, confirmed the development while speaking to journalists in Jalingo.
