A Nigerian healthcare provider who works in a hospital abroad has narrated her experience with a Nigerian COVID-19 patient.

 

@ItsMissisi said she was called to attend to the Nigerian patient who needed to be extubated. 

 

He wasn’t speaking English, something the medic says can be as a result of a drug that causes people to forget even their own name. But when the Nigerian health worker – who is half Igbo and part Yoruba – came in and spoke to him in Yoruba, his eyes lit up and he broke down in tears.

 

The medic narrated: “They just called me for a Nigerian COVID patient they want to extubate but weren’t sure if he didn’t understand English or was just agitated/delirious. I walked in the room and greeted him in Yoruba. He stopped fidgeting and looked at me, his eyes lit up and he started crying .

 

“Man I hope his extubation goes well! I’m going to be six feet away yelling “E lati wuko! E MA WUKO!”

 

“It is SO hard not being able to have family members here with people, especially when there is a communication or language barrier.”
