… Says only 5 COVID-19 death occurred in facility
The First Cardiology Consultant (FCC) Hospital, Ikoyi has said that senator Adebayo Osinowo, representing Lagos East Senatorial District did not die at its facility on Monday.
The late senator died yesterday from complications from an undisclosed ailment. However, soon after his death, some news platforms reported that’s Osinowo died of COVID-19 infection and was admitted at the hospital before his death.
In a disclaimer issued by FCC Healthcare, it said “Mr Osinowo never stepped into the healthcare facility of FCC nor admitted as a COVID-19 patient.”
“It has become fashionable for some unscrupulous reporters, news media and bloggers to ascribe the location of the deaths of any VIP who had COVID-19 to our hospital.
“We wish to go on record that Senator Bayo Osinowo who unfortunately died yesterday, who on social media was claimed to have died at our hospital never stepped into our hospital and has no records here at the First Cardiology Consultant Hospital,” the statement contained.
The FCC management added that said since they got approval as a High Intensity Critical Care facility (Level 3) for COVID-19 patients, “only five patients have died in their facility.”
“Our centre has the most advanced critical care services in Nigeria. We have admitted 28 severely ill people with severe respiratory diseases from COVID-19, and only five have died with 82 per cent survival. These results are superior to the results from the United Kingdom where they have 60 per cent survival for patients hospitalised in the Intensive Care Unit,” the statement read.Follow us on social media
