Flying Doctors Nigeria provided medical assistance to Mr James who was suffering from breathing difficulties due to COVID-19 complications.
Location: Abuja, Nigeria.
Mr James was a foreign national on assignment in Nigeria. He contracted COVID-19 during his time here and started experiencing severe symptoms which led to him being admitted to a hospital in Abuja. Unfortunately, the hospital lacked an adequate oxygen supply to support Mr James and this worsened his condition. Due to this, he had to be transferred quickly to another facility for better care.
Flying Doctors Nigeria was contacted after Mr James was moved to the new facility for an opinion on the ability of the facility to manage the patient and monitor the level of care being administered. We assisted with covering the cost of all the timely medications needed for Mr James management.
The impact was positive as Mr James condition started to improve after being managed for a few days within the new facility.
