25 Year old Nigerian who is a student of Western Michigan University, Bassey Effiong has reportedly died of coronavirus on Saturday the 28th of march.
He was expected to graduate with a chemical engineering degree in a few weeks but was refused testing in the Kalamazoo area while living off-campus, despite having symptoms like fever, fatigue and shortness of breath.
Asari Effiong, the sister of the deceased said: I told him to ask them to test him. He said they refused to test him. One medical staff told him he had bronchitis. I know God has him in his presence. He loved God.
Before his death, Bassey was hospitalized at Beaumont in Royal Oak and spent the last week on a ventilator in their intensive care unit.
