Coronavirus: 16 doctors test positive in Lagos

16 doctors have tested positive to COVID-19 in Lagos state.

According to NAN, this was revealed by the Medical Guild.

Medical Guild comprises doctors under the employment of the Lagos State Government.

The Chairman of the Guild, Dr Oluwajimi Sodipo, said at a media briefing on Monday in Lagos, that Lagos, being the epicentre 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, said the infected doctors were doing fine, adding, “we don’t have any mortality among our members”.
