There is an ongoing debate online about the announcement made by Governor of Edo State, Dr Godwin Obaseki through his twitter account. In his post he wrote;

1.

“One Mrs Amaka Okoro, who tested positive for #COVID-19, is wanted for treatment. She is a nursing mother, who has a baby that is already coughing. Lives at #2 Atoe Idubor Str, off 2nd Ugbor, Benin City.

She has been unreachable since her results returned positive.

2.

Mrs. Okoro poses a threat to herself, the baby, and the general public. Anyone with useful information on her whereabouts should please contact the relevant health and security agencies.”

Many Nigerians have been quick to express their disappointment at the post and how unbecoming it is for the Governor to breach confidentiality of the patient and bring her to public eye in this manner. Some even said NCDC officials should be arrested and prosecuted for releasing the woman’s details.

Personally, I think the Governor made the right call calling her out. While it may not seem nice, she lost every right to confidentiality the moment she took to her heels. I mean we might be talking of a full blown problem in Edo State owing to that singular act she made to run away from treatment.

But then again, this is just my opinion.
