Anambra State government has begun contact tracing at the College of Health Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Nnewi, following the death of its provost, Prof. Onochie Udemezue, of Coronavirus complications.
A memo obtained by Anaedoonline.com on Wednesday from the state government said workers at the administration department, where the late professor’s wife was working, are on self-isolation already, following the discovery that Udemezue died of coronavirus.
The government blamed the late professor for being the architect of his death for resorting to self-medication in treating the coronavirus.
The late provost died about a week ago of diabetes and coronavirus-related complications.
The memo to Governor Willie Obiano by a senior government official, who wished not to be mentioned, was titled: “Undisclosed facts about how Prof. Udemezue, Provost of Nnamdi Azikiwe College of Health Sciences, died of COVID-19”.
The Provost of College of Health Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nnewi Campus, Professor Okwudili O. Udemezue, is suspected to have died of coronavirus.
Anaedonline.com reliably gathered that Prof. Udemezu died at the Isolation Center of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi.
Prof. Udemezu who died this morning was said to have been down of coronavirus close to a week now.
When contacted, the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), Dr. Joe Ugboaja, confirmed that the Provost died of the symptoms of Covid-19, however, he insisted that since the sample test result is not yet out, it cannot be confirmed that Prof. Udemezu died of coronavirus.
