* 83 health workers infected  in Enugu 

The family of Enugu State High Court Judge, Justice Fidelis Ngwu, Tuesday, said he died as a result of hepatitis C which resulted in damaging his liver and not Covid-19 as widely published.

First son of the Judge, Barr. Chukwuebuka Ngwu said in a statement that his father was told by doctors six months ago that the sickness will eventually lead to his death and he was prepared for the ultimate end.

 

The statement read: “I thank the good Lord for this beautiful soul that he gave me for a father.  As you deemed it right to take my father to heaven, I thank you Lord.  My father died in the early hours of today (yesterday). I held him in my arms as he breathed his last. He suffered hepatitis C for close to a decade and it destroyed his liver.

“He was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and was given 6 months to live.  He accepted death with courage and worshipped the Lord till his death.  It is not a sad day; rather it’s a glorious day in heaven.”

 

No date has been fixed for the burial.

Meanwhile, the number of health workers infected by coronavirus in Enugu State has risen to 83, according to the State Commissioner for health, Prof. Emmanuel Obi.

Obi, however explained that the number is from both government and private hospitals, saying that the state has been doing its best to provide the necessary needs of the frontline workers in the battle against the spread of the virus.
