On Friday, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) confirmed two new deaths of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Nigeria. The total number of the deaths in the country now stands at 4.

According to the NCDC, the new deaths were recorded in Lagos and Edo State.

The Lagos death occurred early Friday morning, when a man that was admitted at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba gave up the ghost.

Nyscinfo gathered that the man until his death, suffered from hypertension, sepsis and acute chronic kidney disease.

It was also gathered that he returned from one of the high risk countries where he had a renal transplant and had been coughing repeatedly which is persistent with the signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

The sources at the hospital confirmed that the man earlier lied about his medical records and travel history which probably fast-tracked his death.

After his death, a COVID-19 test was conducted which came out positive.
