Benue index case discharged

News Benue index case discharged

Russia registered another humongous number of coronavirus infections Tuesday as its total cases soared passed 155,000.

The index case of coronavirus in Benue State, Mrs Susan Idoko-Okpe, has finally been discharged.

The 58-year-old Nigerian-British had challenged the result of the test declaring her a COVID-19 patient.

Idoko-Okpe, who arrived in Nigeria from the United Kingdom on March 22, protested that a positive COVID-19 test result, which led to her being taken to the Benue State Isolation Centre in Makurdi on March 27 and subsequently to the National Hospital in Abuja, did not belong to her.

She was discharged on Wednesday evening.

In a telephone conversation made available, Idoko-Okpe was heard confirming to a lady that she had been released.

She said health officials gave her the result of the latest test as demanded and insisted she was positive for COVID-19.

The index case said she later called the Chief Medical Director, who told her that she was never “a prisoner” and that she was free to go.

Idoko-Okpe, who said she would not disclose her current location yet, expressed happiness over her release.

She said she contemplated rolling on the floor to record a video.

“God has been good to me. I went through a lot,” she said.
