Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has said they are monitoring 75 contacts of two COVID-19 patients in the state.
The two persons were confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Abdulrazaq expressed “utter disappointment at the breach of trust” that has trailed the handling of a COVID-19 patient in the state.
The Governor confirmed that an investigation into the incident which took place at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) has begun.
A senior consultant at UITH, Kazeem Salami, is being accused of “unethical conduct” in the management of a patient, who recently returned from the UK.
The patient eventually died and it was confirmed that he tested positive for the virus.
Salami was suspended by the UITH on Monday.
