Ondo State’s Commissioner for Health, Wahab Adegbenro, has died of suspected coronavirus-related complications.⁣

The 65-year-old died at the state’s infectious disease hospital, where he was receiving treatment, on Thursday, July 2, 2020.⁣

The deceased was one of the central figures in the state’s response to the highly-infectious coronavirus disease that has infected 26,484 people and killed 603 in Nigeria, as of July 1.⁣

His death comes just two days after Ondo governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, announced that he tested positive for the coronavirus disease after he received treatment for malaria.⁣

“I’m not feeling sick, neither am I feeling odd in any way, but my doctors have decided that I should take the normal treatment and self-isolate,” the 63-year-old said.⁣

Five other state governors have tested positive for the novel disease with the most high-profile casualty being President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari, who died in April.⁣

The coronavirus has infected over 10.8 million people across the world and claimed over 519,000 lives.⁣
