A Nigerian healthcare worker identified as Ugonwa Okeke has reportedly died of the novel Coronavirus in New Jersey, U.S.A.
Ugonna, who is a graduate of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), relocated to America some years back in search of greener pasture.
She was firmly on the path of achieving great success in her chosen career as a healthcare provider in New Jersey but tragically, that dream was cut short by Coronavirus.
Friends and family members took to Facebook to mourn Ugonna – a mother of two. One Samson Idonigie broke the news of her death on his Facebook, adding that she died while saving others.
“With sad heart we announce the death of our own Ugonwa Okeke (Heath Care Worker) New Jersey of Covid-19,
Lost hers while saving others” he wrote.
