The Nigerians evacuated from Dubai put to false the death news of a Dubai Returnee who was claimed to have died of coronavirus.
We could recall, The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi said a Nigerian man who was an evacuated from Dubai died of Coronavirus.
“Additional 33 COVID-19 patients; 9 females & 24 males have been discharged following full recovery. Total number of discharged COVID-19 patients in Lagos now stands at 502.
“Another COVID-19 infection related death involving 32-year-old male has been recorded.
“The deceased recently returned from Dubai with severe underlying health condition, following evacuation of Nigerians in foreign countries by @DigiCommsNG,” Mr Abayomi wrote.
The Nigerians who were evacuated from Dubai and camped at ‘Orchid Hotel Lekki‘ said the news is false.
“They tested him in the airport, they give satisfactory that he can fly, that his health condition is not all that worst and he doesn’t have coronavirus before he bordered the airplane with us“.
A man leading the group said the NCDC is not doing anything as they also complained of Mosquitoes.

The Lagos State Government has also reversed its earlier report that an evacuee from Dubai died of COVID-19, saying the pronouncement was made in error.
In a tweet Thursday, the Commissioner for Health, Lagos State, Prof. Akin Abayomi, said government only presumed he died of the virus considering the sudden nature of his demise and without the state’s prior knowledge of his multiple preexisting conditions.
“This presumptive attribution is a precaution to ensure the safe clinical management of the patient and subsequent handling of the corpse. The definitive COVID-19 gold standard test has turned out to be negative for the infection and his death is no longer considered to have been attributable to COVID-19,” he added
