A private hospital in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, has rejected the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu (Ph.D), who sought treatment there for Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The hospital, located in the Gudu area of the FCT, turned him down on the excuse “that they are into kidney transplant and cannot afford an iota of infection”, a source close to the elitist medical facility told News Express on Tuesday.
“Ikpeazu has been in Abuja for four days. After being diagnosed positive for COVID-19, he sought treatment at Zenith Hospital, Gudu, but they refused.
They are into kidney transplant and cannot afford an iota of infection,” the source said.
Asked where Ikpeazu was eventually admitted for treatment, the source said: “They moved him to a private facility.”
