Lagos State Health Commissioner, Prof Akin Abayomi, has stated that the coronavirus infection affects the kidney and the blood.
The coronavirus is an ongoing global pandemic which has killed over 200,000 people.
Speaking during a programme on Arise News earlier today, the Lagos commissioner warned that obese, diabetic, and hypertensive persons should be “very careful” as their condition pose a likely risk of being infected with the lethal virus.
“There are new discoveries about the COVID-19 virus. For instance, it is not a straightforward respiratory problem. We have found out that it impacts the blood, the kidneys.
“The common denominator are diabetes, hypertension, and underlying immunological problems. Obesity is also a possible risk factor. We watch such people closely. If you fall into any of these categories, you have to be very careful,” he said.
