20 doctors died of COVID-19 while treating victims within one week, NMA declares .

No fewer than 20 medical doctors have died of COVID-19 in the last one week. This sad news was broken by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).


 Channels TV reports that the NMA chairman in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Enema Amodu, disclosed this known at a briefing on Friday, December 25, in Abuja, the nation's capital.  

The late medical doctors contracted the disease in the course of treating infected patients who failed to disclose their true health status. 

The NMA boos, however, called on patients visiting clinics and hospitals to declare their true health status to avoid exposing doctors and other health workers to the risk of disease infection. 

Amodu also called for the provision of essential drugs in the hospitals, saying the doctors were ready to combat the second wave of the virus.
