Some coronavirus patients in Gombe state were reportedly seen on the streets on Tuesday to protest over inadequate medical attention at the Kwadon Isolation Centre, Yamaltu Deba Local Government Area of Gombe State.
The patients who blocked the popular Gombe/Biu Road, were said to be protesting against government’s negligence, inadequate food and medical attention in the isolation centre.
Yes, they have left the isolation center and are presently destroying people’s properties on the main highway.
“It’s so sad, what could have led these patients into protesting against the government? I think government is not being truthful.”
Efforts to reach the Commissioner for Health in the state, Ahmed Gana, proved abortive. However, an official of the state’s Ministry of Health confirmed the situation.
