COVID-19 Home Care Killing Many Top Nigerians – Osagie Ehanire by valentineuwakwe(m): 6:51am On May 20, 2020
The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, on Tuesday, said the Federal Government was disturbed that COVID-19 deaths came from many educated, well-to-do Nigerians who chose home-based care and were only rushed to hospitals after sudden complications.

The minister, who stated this during the daily briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja, advised everyone who tested positive for COVID-19 to seek medical attention, and not use drugs without a doctor’s prescription.

Ehanire said five centres in the country were researching into possible COVID-19 drugs. He said chloroquine was one of such drugs.

The health minister said, “As we learn more about coronavirus every day, we must be ready to adjust our strategy, based on knowledge and evidence. As of Monday, we had sadly recorded 191 deaths in 26 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

“Even though this figure seems low compared to other countries, a disturbing picture emerging from the statistics is that not only are most fatalities linked with pre-existing diseases, many are educated, well-to-do people, who chose home-based care, where they develop sudden complications and have to be rushed to hospital.

“Experience is showing that complications in COVID-19 patients can arise with little or no notice. This is an added reason why all persons should seek medical attention when they test positive.”


The minister said the ministry of health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control were assessing isolation centres across the country.

He added, “We have recently been in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, and Osogbo, Osun State. We will continue providing diagnostic commodities and facilities in collaboration with partners.”

Minister warns against self-medication

Ehanire added, “On chloroquine, first, we do not at any time or in any way support self-medication. If you hear that anyone is taking medication of any type, it has to be something prescribed by his doctor. There are medicines that should not be in your hands unless they are prescribed by your doctor.

“There are medicines over-the-counter that you can buy. But there are prescription medicines, which you should not have unless your doctor prescribes them.”

Enough of all these Covid-19 lying games! Call NCDC for an emergency of one showings Covid-19 symptoms at home, their response will baffle you and usher you into the Covid-19 lying games.

This is the kind of thing that inspired Charles Darwin to embrace the theory of Natural Selection. If you want to weed out your garden, just put your hands in your pockets and watch.



When you flatten the curve you also lengthen the curve. Is he willing to go 6 months or more with this? Going 6 months will destroy the economy and usher in a depression. Why is this necessary for a virus that is a little worse than H1N1, which we did nothing for?
Just like every other flu we have known throughout the history of mankind. Should you not shake hands? Of course, Should you wash your hands regularly? Always. Should you stay home if you are sick? Certainly.

Should we destroy the economy, shutter businesses, put a match to the world's wealth? Months of quarantine will do this and I don't think so.

Ridiculous! Some People are easily manipulated! Once you give up your Rights and Civil Liberties for safety sake , you have given up all your freedom! The Government owns you. This is not what our ancestors fought and died for.

This man has turned from Minister of health to minister of information on health matters. Always distributing fear and panic. Probably to justify the huge government spending on covid 19.

Testing is very slow and hard to come by. In a population of over 300 million people only less than 40,000 have been tested. Many are on queues waiting with the shakara stories of the health officials that we hear everyday. Government too says testing equipments are not enough. Those in Isolation centers complain. Sadly certain people in government have been accused of embezzling funds meant for corvid 19. People do not trust government. Government failed in a lot of areas.

Now they accuse people of home based treatment. Do you expect people to either just sit at home without treating themselves or go and to test centers without getting tested?

How is it that suddenly many are dying of home based treatment? Is this not an indication that the daily reports of NCDC are not correct? Please government get more serious with us.
