Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Cross River chapter has again raised concern over possible deaths caused by COVID-19 in the state.

The association raised the concern yesterday in Calabar in a press statement signed by its Chairman Dr Agam Ayurk and the Secretary, Dr Ezoke Epoke, noting that it has received several reports from the Surveillance and Epidemiology unit that delay in some post-mortem sample collections has led to the rising number of death of suspected cases of COVID-19 in the state.

In view of this, the association called for rapid response and urgent transportation of samples within 24 hours of the collection with daily situation reports avoiding fake news or anxiety.
