Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commissioned a 118- bed new Isolation Centre at Gbagada General Hospital.
He said the facility was revamped over the past two months to accommodate patients who have contracted COVID-19. Governor Sanwo-Olu also stated that the facility has all the expectations of clinical care.
Naija news recalled that the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, said on Thursday during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja that there was a shortage of bed spaces in Lagos, which has more than 50 percent of the total COVID-19 cases reported in the country.
meanwhile, Nigeria’s Health Minister, Osagie Ehanire, has also reinforced the views of Dr. Ihekweazu, by begging Nigerians to give-out their building to be used as isolation centers for COVID-19 patients.
