Lagos lists seven private laboratories for COVID-19 tests

Seven private laboratories have now been  licensed by the Lagos State government  to enhance COVID-19 sample testing in the state, according to Health Commissioner, Akin Abayomi.

Abayomi  in an update on  the state’s COVID-19 situation on Friday said that the private laboratories were selected through a rigorous accreditation process.

On the list are: Total Medical Services; SynLab; 54Gene; Medbury Medical Services; Biologix Medical Services; 02 Medical Services and Clina Lancent Laboratories.

He said that it was imperative that COVID-19 tests be  widely available to members of the public as the state continuously opened  up various aspects of its economy.

The state, he added, took the strategic decision to include private laboratories in its testing of COVID-19 in a bid to ramp up its capacity.

He, however, said that the state’s COVID-19 response would remain a centrally managed emergency response by the government.

“We expect the selected laboratories to commence testing COVID-19 cases within the next few days,” the commissioner said.
