Dr Ochogbu explained that Madam Hannatu Tanko was admitted in the hospital for headache, malaria, typhoid and yellow fever for normal treatment.

 “ASHMED does not know about the interview that was done for the woman. We learnt that it was done by her relative. And we also believes strongly in the Vaccine, because all the staff in hospital took the vaccine on the 23rd of March 2021 and none of the staff showed any adverse reaction”
