A man was spotted in Rivers state carrying his sick wife on his back to the hospital in the absence of the vehicle or motorcycles as a result of the lockdown order imposed on the state by the state government as measures to curb the further spread of the coronavirus in the state.
A good samaritan, Mumy B Oyigbo, who saw the man in a helpless condition after trekking a long distance offered help by transporting the couple to the hospital.
Oyigbo wrote while sharing the experience of what the couple went through before her intervention on her Facebook page, "Watch how this Coronavirus lockdown might be leading to death in Rivers State. The girl you see in the video was almost dying her husband had to carry her on his back for long because there is no vehicle on the road.
"She almost fainted on the road, I couldn’t record that part because I’m the only one driving. I had to help them to my hospital. Last time, I saw a more severe case where I still drove them to my hospital free of charge where we gave the girl emergency oxygen she was a second away from death."
"God save us in this Rivers State. Many sick people will die at home. If hunger does not kill other sicknesses will because you can’t go out. God save us in Rivers State."
