Coronavirus: Why We Won’t Reveal Italian Identity – Lagos Govt by zakim(m): 10:12pm On Mar 04, 2020
The Lagos State government has said it will not disclose the identity of an Italian national who tested positive to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), insisting it is against the ethics of medical practice to give out information about the identity of the patient.

Many Nigerians have been calling on government to disclose the identity of the Italian since he was announced as the first person with the virus in the country.

In a press parley with reporters at the Lagos Ministry of health on Wednesday, the Commissioner for health, Prof Akin Abayomi said the rules of engagement regarding patient-doctor confidentiality had compelled him not to disclose the name and other personal information of the Italian. He disclosed that the Italian man was responding to treatment, adding that a new treatment had commenced for the index case in the isolation ward at the Mainland hospital in Lagos.

In his explanation, Abayomi said: “We started a new treatment for him two days ago which he is responding fine to. He is comfortable but bored. At the moment, we are trying to make him comfortable because he is the only person in the isolation room with 14 beds, he has nothing to do all day long, nobody wants to come and visit him. We’ve made provisions for him to have wifi to connect to the outside world.”

“We are testing him everyday. What we are looking forward to is to see if there is still evidence of the virus in his secretion. The moment we stop seeing the footprint of the virus, then we wait for an extra two to three days to make sure he is okay. “Sometimes, when you clear the virus, there is an element of rebound before it goes away. If there is a rebound and we release him, there are chances of infecting people around him.”

Can anybody tell me the name of the first woman that died of Corona virus in USA?
The only thing you will see is a 56years old woman from Washington, no name no pictures.
Even the other 5 that died, their names and pictures were not released.

I used America to buttress my point because they are the ones we are always referencing, don’t want to use Italy, China and Iran as example.

No sane doctor or nation can disclose the health status of a patient who has subjected itself to treatment.
Such act is a punishable offense by law.

Let us stop sounding petty on social media

Extraordinary problems call for extraordinary solutions. The virus has shown it can reappear in people that are cured. Please release his name so we can avoid him.

If I see him walking into my street, I'll take the next street to walk away.

Nonsense

They've succeded in looting billions with this lie of the century .

When Sawyerr of Liberia brought Ebola to Nigeria during PDP regime , we confirmed his identity . Now it's The time of APC on corona virus and everything seems to be going south .

APC is a party of rogues and vultures.

shocked

This albino looking commissioner should save his silly self the stress, we discerning minds have already known what's cooking. We don't need his watery explanation/lies

All other countries around the world revealing theirs and carrying their people along are going against medical ethics?

During the time of Ebola, there was constant update about Patrick Sawyer who brought the virus to the country and doctors who treated him who later got infected too

Now with buhari and APC gov't all we hear is 'one Italian man' either eating amala or trying to run away from detention camp

Aren't these guys satisfied with the blatant lies they've already told. You can deceive some people for sometime but you can't deceive all the people all the time

They should continue their looting spree in the guise of fighting a virus that never found it's way here

Time will tell

What makes me believe this whole Italian man story is a hoax created by this government to make Nigerians believe that it has curtailed Corona virus just like Jonathan curtailed Ebola?
