The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has said that his younger brother who died recently was as a result of COVID-19.
Haroun Hamzat, a young medical doctor, was announced dead last week with the cause reportedly linked to COVID-19.
Confirming the report, Hamzat revealed that COVID-19 is not a respecter of anybody.
He said, “This week I lost my 37 years old younger brother, Dr. Haroun Hamzat to #COVID19. He was hard working and well-loved, helping a lot of patents at the Lagos primary healthcare centre in Orile, Agege. COVID19 does not respect anyone & this second wave is affecting across age groups
“I thank Mr. Governor for visiting my family today and we discussed some of the things the state is doing to ensure our healthcare infrastructure can adequately serve the state. The first line of defence lies with you. Protect your friends and family by following our guidelines.”
