Close to 20 coronavirus patients in Gombe on Tuesday, May 5, made their way from an isolation centre in the Yamaltu Deba area of the state over alleged poor treatment.
Claiming that their conditions have worsened since they arrived at the centre, the protesters who took over the highway linking the state with Borno insisted that they were given poor medical attention and opted for self-treatment outside the facility, Premium Times reports.
A concerned eyewitness who spoke with journalists about the issue said:
“Government should do the needful before it gets out of hand because the patients we saw today are really angry and we don’t know what could happen next.”
“They were chanting that the state government lied against their status while some were saying they were fine. This is serious.”
