Drama: 2 Doctors and a nurse held hostage by Covid-19 patients in Kano

There was an unpleasant dramatic at the Kwanar Dawakin isolation center in Kano state on Thursday, May 7 as two doctors and a nurse were reportedly held hostage by the coronavirus patients at the facility.

Former Chairman of Nigerian Medical Association in Kano, Prof. Aminu Mohammed confirmed the incident in an interview with Wazobia FM’s “make una wake up show” this morning. 

He said the fully kitted health workers were on a ward round when they were locked in by the Coronavirus patients for hours. Mohammed said the doctors were almost suffocating before they managed to break down the door and forced their way out of the ward. 

One of the patients who confirmed the incident, said they were protesting against the delayed testing and confirmation of their status within the stipulated 7 days period of being on drugs. He however insisted that the health workers did not break down the door, but were allowed to go following the intervention of the leader of the health workers at the center.
