16 Lagos doctors infected with CovidD-19 - Medical Guild

Medical doctors under the employ of Lagos State Government have expressed worry over-relaxation of the lockdown in the State, disclosing that 16 members of the Medical Guild in the state workforce have been infected with Covid-19.

Addressing a press conference on the Issues of Covid-19 Response and Challenges Identified by the Guild, in Lagos, Chairman of the Medical Guild, Dr Sodipo Oluwajimi who explained that the doctors were in stable condition, said to prevent more doctors from testing positive to the disease, they have adopted the slogan of ‘No Personal Protective Equipment, No work.”

According to him, the State Government should prioritise the provision of PPE in the hospitals at all levels so as to prevent the spread of the virus.

Sodipo added that the current community transmission of Covid-19 has led to a situation, where everyone can be designated as a Covid suspect especially as there are asymptomatic patients as well as those with atypical symptoms.
