“This has, unfortunately, led to several healthcare workers infected with COVID-19 and over 16 doctors 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.

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.”

He, however, said the infected doctors “are doing fine and we don’t have any mortality among our members.”

As it stands, Lagos leads the toll of Nigeria’s COVID-19 infections with 1,123 of the overall 2,558 cases. So far, Lagos has discharged 247 patients, while two patients have been evacuated, 16 patients transferred and 30 deaths recorded.
