Leading media businessman Raymond Dokpesi, who became infected with COVID-19 along with seven other family members, was discharged from the University of Abuja Treatment Center after recovering and testing the negative disease twice.
According to THE PUNCH, Dokpesi was released along with his two grandchildren. His son and some members of his family are still being treated. In a letter of thanks signed by the founder of Daar Communications, he expressed gratitude to God for seeing his family during the probationary period.
He wrote: “I am extremely grateful to Almighty God for keeping and protecting me and my whole family through our isolation at the Teaching University at the University of Abuja in the Guagwalada Isolation Center.”
Dokpesi said that his two-week trial at the hospital gave him firsthand experience of the huge challenges facing Nigeria as a country.
He thanked many Nigerians for their friendly information, as well as the Federal Government Secretary Mustafa; the Minister of Health Dr. Osagie Ehanire; and the management of the teaching hospital and others for their support and care.
“We have a better understanding of the personal sacrifices many Nigerians have made to ensure that we collectively defeat this epidemic. This involves decision makers, caregivers, and even cleaners, because the work of cleaners puts them at constant risk of exposure “, He said.
