A Nigerian man identified as Emmanuel Benson has reportedly been sent home from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) without treatment.
According to reports, Emmanuel Benson visited the hospital on March 21, 2020 after having close contacts with two infected persons who returned from the Unites Kingdom (UK).
He has however asked to go home even though he tested positive for the virus.
He claimed that he called the disease control centre on many occasions but no one picked up the calls.
“I am at home on self-isolation now. I had the test at LUTH even though the queue was too long. Some of the medical staff I spoke with later advised me to go home and self-isolate. They said I should get back to them after 14 days or that in seven days they might call to check my progress.
“I was infected at a dinner party organised for the two men who returned to Nigeria from the UK.I went for the test on March 21,” he said.
