16 Doctors Test Positive For COVID-19 In Lagos
The Chairman of Medical Guild Lagos, Dr Oluwajimi Sodipo, disclosed at a media briefing on Monday in Lagos, that 16 doctors have tested positive to COVID-19 in Lagos state.
According to Dr Oluwajimi, Lagos being the center of COVID-19 in Nigeria had seen members of the guild playing a critical role in the response plan.
“This has unfortunately led to several healthcare workers being infected with COVID-19 and over 16 doctors are isolated so far in the state workforce. There may be more doctors who are infected, but from the information available to us, 16 of our members are infected with COVID-19,” he said.
Sodipo, however, disclosed that the infected doctors were doing fine, adding, “we don’t have any mortality among our members.”
He also advised the State Government should prioritize the provision of PPE in the hospitals at all levels so as to prevent the spread of the virus.
