Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, had said a large percentage of those who died were managed in their homes.

Speaking at the presidential task force on COVID-19 briefing on Tuesday, he said some of the fatalities developed complications as a result of underlying medical conditions.

“Not only are most fatalities observed to be linked with pre-existing diseases, many of them are educated well-to-do people, who chose home-based care where complications suddenly developed and they have to be rushed to the hospital,” Ehanire had said.
