Bibiana Zira was admitted at the FMC Gusau before her death.
A youth corps member, Bibiana Zira, serving in Gusau, Zamfara, has died of pneumonia after two weeks of admission in hospital.
The NYSC Coordinator in the state, Ruth Bakka, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Gusau.
Ms. Bakka said the corps member was on admission for two weeks at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Gusau, but died on Monday, August 26, at the age of 29 years.
She said that during the deceased’s stay at the hospital, some fellow corps members donated blood to her, but that due to the strike action at the hospital, she could not receive the blood.
The coordinator added that the deceased was transferred to Yerima Bakura Specialist Hospital, Gusau, where she was given oxygen but that she died later.
Ms. Bakka said Ms. Zira was the first corps member that died of an illness in Gusau.
She said there were cases of corps members falling sick during their service year, but that once they were taken to the hospital, they would be treated and discharged.
