North Mississippi doctor dies after contracting COVID-19 in Nigeria

Friends are mourning the death of longtime Olive Branch physician Dr. Edward Gbemudu, who died from COVID-19 while visiting his home country of Nigeria.

It’s believed Gbemudu, who was also on the staff at Baptist Hospital DeSoto, contracted the virus while attending a funeral. He was hospitalized, but he never recovered.

A close friend said the doctor cared deeply about his patients, and he will be missed.

“He’s a very compassionate and caring physician who takes the best medical approach to assist his patients feel better and never give up on his patients,” said Dr. Emmanuel Obi, who practices in Internal Medicine in Brownsville.

Obi spoke fondly of Gbemudu and said the doctor begin experiencing symptoms once he returned from Nigeria.

“He traveled on the 15th of December, and then on the 25th of December he started having symptoms. In less than one week, he was dead,” Obi said. “I talked to him, and he was on a 100-percent oxygen, but somehow on Thursday, on Friday January 1st, his condition just went for the worst.”


Obi said the hospital didn’t have a respirator. He arranged to get one for his good friend, but it would take two hours.

“By the time the respirator got to his hospital, he was gone,” Obi said. “It just happened so fast.”

Obi said once the virus started its deadly rampage, nothing seemed to be able to stop it, Igbere TV reports.

“He had all the medical therapy that is available here in the United States,” Obi said. “He had it there, but he just did not respond. So on January 1st was when he took his last breath.”

In Olive Branch at the medical clinic where Doctor Gbemudu practiced, staff members were too upset to talk on camera. A wreath on the front door conveying their love and admiration for the doctor.

“Our hearts go out to Dr. Gbemudu’s family, friends, patients and colleagues. He was a valued member of our medical staff for several years and distinguished himself as a wonderful physician.

His death is yet another reminder of how deadly COVID-19 can be and the importance of taking the proper precautions – social distancing, wearing a mask and regular hand washing – to protect ourselves and one another from contracting it.”

Nawa o. This new year Corona is still flexing muscle anyhow. This virus is proving to be stubborn even with all the medical advancements in the world.

He died of advanced malaria and typhoid. There's no such thing as Corona virus here in Nigeria. Our government just claimed it's here so that they can have their own share if the money world Bank end Europe union was sharing to poor African countries.

May his soul rest in peace.

Lockdown doesn't stop the spread of the virus.

The government should stop testing and stop playing politics with this virus only then can we will have fewer cases. Simple.

FG has been insincere,they fabricate and peddle untrue figures of covid-19 cases in order to feather their nest,every thoughtful person knows that the pandemic is not that severe in Nigeria as it is being reported.All that is happening now is to justify N400bn budgeted for the purchase of covid-19 vaccines,after all politicians are preparing for 2023 elections and this is one of the golden opportunities to swell their bank accounts for smooth running of their campaigns.
