Lagos State Health Commissioner, Prof Akin Abayomi, has said that the coronavirus infection will weaken the kidney and affects the blood.

He disclosed this on Wednesday morning during a programme on television.

The commissioner cautioned 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.
