Only severe cases of Coronavirus will be admitted in isolation centres, Lagos reveals

Lagos State will now be concentrating on people with severe cases and isolating them while mild cases will be managed at home.

This was disclosed by the state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi.

The health commissioner said the decision became necessary as they’ve exceeded the containment phase and now at the active community transmission stage.

 

He added that they will intensify home treatment for Coronavirus patients with mild symptoms, as isolation centers are running out of bed spaces following increased cases of Coronavirus in the state.

 

Abayomi said;

 

 “We have exceeded the containment phase now. We are at the active community transmission stage.

“We will be concentrating on people with severe cases and isolating them while mild cases will be managed at home. Our attention is shifting to community-based isolation.”
