The Minister of State for Health, Adeleke Mamora, has revealed that a Nigerian doctor, Olumide Okunuga, has died in Canada after contracting coronavirus. Dr. Okunuga who lived in Italy had contracted the disease during a visit to Canada. He died at the age of 63.

The minister stated this while speaking to reporters in Abuja on Monday during a briefing on updates on the COVID-19 situation in the country.

“We must be conscious of not being complacent, the price to pay for complacency is huge. I have heard people say that the black man’s gene is resistant and so COVID-19 is not for us,” he said.

“Don’t forget, some black men even from Africa, even from Nigeria have died, unfortunately. We heard the story of one doctor who lived in Italy, a Nigerian, a black man.

“So we should not get carried away. There are a lot of things known about COVID-19 and there are still things unknown. We have to be very careful about believing claims that are yet to be fully validated,” Mamora said.
