A Nigerian Coronavirus patient in China identified as Okonkwonwoye Chika Patrick is in the grips of the police.
He was arrested for allegedly biting a Chinese nurse, Ms Wang, as he attempted to escape from isolation.
According to a report by the Daily Mail, this 47-year-old man reportedly beat the nurse, after she stopped him from leaving his quarantine ward at a hospital in Guangzhou, China.
Per the reports, the patient has been at the hospital since March 23, after he tested positive for Coronavirus.
Prior to the incident, Ms Wang reportedly approached him to take a blood test, but he ignored her and attempted to walk out of his quarantine ward.
This led to a scuffle and the patient had to bite her face as Ms Wang suffered multiple injuries to her face, neck, and waist.
The Guangzhou police said they have been investigating the incident and will act accordingly.
