Lagos Government Urges Public To Disregard List Of Hospitals Exposed To COVID-19 Cases

The Lagos State Government has urged members of the public to disregard a list making the round on social media of hospitals and health facilities purportedly exposed to COVID19 cases in the State.

The Executive Secretary, Lagos Health Facility and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) who disowned the list which was purported to have emanated from the Ministry of Health disclosed that the Ministry of Health through HEFAMAA never issued any statement advising the public not to patronize certain facilities in the State.

“This is the handiwork of mischief makers and fake news merchant who are bent on causing panic in the community and eroding the success recorded in the battle against COVID19”.

“I therefore urge residents to disregard the list in its entirety and rely solely on the Ministry of Health and HEFAMAA for information on the operation of health facilities and management of COVID19 cases especially at this critical time”, She said.

Idowu explained that some health facilities might inadvertently admit or treat patients with #COVID19 without knowing. She stated that if this happens the facility will be temporarily closed for decontamination while the staff would be trained on Infection, Prevention and Control after which the facility is safe to carry on its normal operations.

She appealed to members of the public to desist from stigmatizing health facilities that might have been exposed to #COVID19 cases as well as patients infected with COVID19 to prevent severe health problems.
