Founder of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Alegho Dokpesi, and his son, Raymond Dokpesi Jnr have been discharged from isolation centre.
Dokpesi and his sons were discharged from the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital isolation centre after they recovered from coronavirus (COVID-19).
The younger Dokpesi was discharged hours after his father, and his two children were discharged after recovering from the disease.
Dokpesi Jr thanked the hospital’s medical team and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in a message early Friday.
“My sojourn at the Gwagwalada isolation centre was an eye-opening experience which imbued me with confidence in the unabated enthusiasm and commitment of Nigerian public health workers to serve and ensure the welfare of each of their patients,” Dokpesi said.
Continuing, he said, “It was also an exposé into the practical limitations of the system in ensuring even with best intentions that public health objectives in the face of COVID-19 are achieved and sustained.
“With praise and glory to Almighty God, I started feeling immediate improvement in my wellbeing once the combination of azithromycin, chloroquine and zinc were administered to me by Wednesday, 29th April, 2020. My senses of smell and taste which were lost since the time I arrived at the facility were restored by Friday, 1st May, 2020. All my vital signs including temperature, blood pressure, pulse and oxygen saturation improved and have consistently shown excellent readings since. The oxygen machine which was brought to my room became redundant.”
