The Edo State government has confirmed the death of a pregnant woman at Stella Obasanjo Hospital in Benin and 15 others in other COVID-19 facilities.

Coronavirus Case Management leader, Dr. Ebomwonyi Osagie made the disclosure at a briefing on Monday.

The official confirmed that the victims were not vaccinated.

The pregnant woman, 33, died three hours after presentation at the Stella Obasanjo Hospital.

She was about 28 weeks pregnant and was battling with pre-eclampsia.

Osagie said the deceased had COVID-19, which pushed her more toward developing pre-eclampsia and then death.

Some women have pre-eclampsia and are successfully managed, the official noted.

“The patient died three hours after presentation, which means that there is little that would have been done to manage the situation,” he said.

Osagie appealed to private hospital to let patients go very early for treatment.

He added that of 537 samples were collected, 103 recovered and discharged, and 16 deaths recorded within 48hours.

“We have 70 people in admission, 296 people in home care, 344 discharged and 50 deaths, since the outbreak of the pandemic,” Osagie said.
