Family Of COVID-19 Victim Cries for Justice



A Nigerian man identified as Okolo DivineBliss cries out for justice after his mum died at New General Hospital in Asaba, Delta state on June 27 due to no medical attention.

According to the narration, his mum had been sick for a while, and she has been receiving treatment until June 25 when she was taken to the hospital.

Upon arriving at the hospital, the doctors allegedly refused to admit her over fears that she might have COVID19 but later did on the condition that she will be placed in the isolation area.

He claimed that since on Thursday, until when she died on Saturday, the doctors did not attend to his mum and she died yesterday.

Read his post below; ”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 a 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. Some symptoms of the sickness were coughing, and 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 administer 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 Isolation center, and also, her oxygen level became low in the hospital.

I always said that they shouldn’t have moved her there cos my mum hadn’t gone anywhere to have COVID even throughout the time my sister, who has health issues was taking care of her at home didn’t possess any sign of transfer from my mom, so I was entirely sure within myself that it was not COVID.

But since the doctors and everyone refused to treat her, we allowed her in, and she was put on oxygen.

They Isolated her in the Center, and she was there without any proper 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 daily.

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, however, to be out, that he could stay and watch her and if anything goes wrong he could call them on the phone from the room which he regularly did, but they did not respond to him fast whenever her did.

We stayed awake at home throughout 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 called the doctors from home they would say that they have gone to check her and she was 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 am the calls and lies of the doctors was that she was doing fine and receiving attention. 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 without 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 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 an X Ray which showed she had acute pneumonia which could have 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”
