11 Nigerians Die Of COVID-19 In South Africa

11 Nigerians Die Of COVID-19 In South Africa (Updated: 2 years ago)


The Nigerian Union in South Africa (NUSA) Says 11 Nigerians have so far died of COVID-19 in the country.

In a statement released, the president of the union, Adetola Olubajo, said that the COVID-19 deaths were for Gauteng Province alone, adding that the union is yet to receive figures from eight other provinces in South Africa.

He cautioned Nigerians who still do not believe the disease to do so and take all the protocols seriously.

“At the last count, 11 Nigerians have died from COVID-19 in Gauteng Province alone. I have attended the funeral of some of them.Many people believe that COVID-19 pandemic is political and fake and that they are just seeing figures.

On the contrary, we have seen quite a number of our people that have died from the disease in South Africa.Another challenge we have is stigmatisation and refusal of infected people to disclose their status.

We have provided a channel through which the identities of infected people will be protected and we give them the much-needed support.For instance, in case someone can’t get an ambulance, as soon as we get such a call, we ensure the person gets the ambulance” he said
