A Nigerian man has cried out for Justice after his mother die out of alleged carelessness by staff of New General Hospital in Asaba.
Sharing his story, he wrote,
”My name is Okolo DivineBliss,, and I lost my mum today be the 27th of June 2020.. And this is how it happened..
My mum has been sick for some while now and nurses and doctors have been coming over to the house to administer treatment to her and by God’s grace she was responding fine to it.. Some symptoms of the sickness were coughing, she was feeling weak, and also had pains….
So on the 25th of July 2020 we decided to move her to the New general hospital Asaba,, she walked down through our house stairs all by herself even though she was weak..
My Dad and my siblings got to the hospital with her and they refused to admitted treatment because the whole doctors were afraid that it was Covid19 as everyone will suspect… They abandoned her in pains for over an hour before they decided that they are not going to treat her except she Isolated in their Isolations center.. and also her oxygen leve became low in the hospital…
I always said that they shouldn’t ahve moved her there cos my mum hadn’t gone anywhere to to have Covid even through out the time my sister who has health issues was taking care of her at home she didn’t posses any sign of transfer from my mom so I was fully sure within myself that it was not Covid..
But since the doctors and everyone refused to treat her we allowed her to in and she was put on oxygen…
They Isolated her in the Center and she was there without no good attention which I can swear to because we spoke to her regularly and she said no doctor or anymore had gone to see.. we took food to her regularly,,,
Then Until the 26th of June 2020 being yesterday My Dad went with my brother to take things for her at the Isolation Center.. They agreed with my dad that since the case was not yet confirmed and the test result was yet to be out,, that he could stay and watch her and if anything goes wrong he could call them on phone from the room which he regularly did but they did not respond to him fast whenever her did…
We stayed awake at home through out the night praying for the life of my mum and talked to my brother who was there with her regularly and he always said that no one was coming to check on her upon they had a CCTV camera in their Isolation rooms…..
Whenever we call the doctors from home they would say that they have gone to check her and she’s okay but my brother would still say no one has come and she is very weak and breathing slowly… This situation of calling and lying by the Covid 19 doctors happened for over 1hour…is that not wicked of them.
This morning at around 5 o’clock am when the calls and lies of the doctors that she was doing fine and attending to her.,, we decided to go to the hospital ourselves since my brother was crying bitterly that mom is laying dead….
When we got there around After 5am we went forward to the Covid19 area with out car and kept on screaming that they should go and look at my mum but you know what we were there for over an hour no single Doctor came out to speak to us and these were the same doctors that were telling us that she’s fine and taken care of while we were at home…
Out of bitterness I moved into the Covid19 session which they did not lock well and was screaming for help of the doctors and no one still Came out for over an hour… I went into her room that has A CCTV camera where they monitor everything from and started praying but to no avail and no one was still responding to us patients coming out of their wards in the room to complain why the doctors should be so wicked hearing my family’s voice screaming…..
To note: They did and X Ray which showed she had acute pneumonia which could av obviously been the cause of the Covid 19 symptoms she was experiencing but the doctors were not going to attend to her well until the result was going to be out and now my mum is dead….. They couldn’t even face the acute Pneumonia but concluded it’s a Covid 19 case without adequate test… What if the result is out now and it is negative please who killed my mother… Issit not the Doctors….
Please all I need is justice for my mum and support to my family.. She was a Bread winner for us and the one who took care of us always… I don’t know where to go or what to do from here… please I need everyone right now cos it’s like I am single in my world at the moment… Who would take of me ? Who would be my mother? She was the closest to me…. Very prayerful and hardworking.. I don’t know what else to type here that Doctors and Wicked … and as real as Covid 19 is they don’t take it serious In their Isolation centres cos they feel people must die.. please I Need your help for justice and support for my mum”
