35 Doctors Infected In Kwara

The Kwara State branch of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), on Monday, said that thirty-five doctors have so far tested positive for COVID-19 since the virus manifested in the state.

NMA Chairman, Dr Kolade Solagberu, made this known while briefing journalists on events heralding the association’s 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Ilorin, NAN reports.

Solagberu also noted that the association had not recorded any casualty among its members, adding that people should avoid visiting the hospital except for life-threatening issues.

“Residents should help the doctors to help them by not paying unnecessary visits or consultations to hospitals.

“For now, people should avoid visiting the hospital except for life-threatening issues.

“We advise people to engage in e-health service instead of physical consultation to avoid contact as much as possible.

“This is because every patient is a potential COVID-19 case.”

The NMA chairman commended the Federal and State governments for the continued closure of schools, adding that safety should be paramount until the coast is clear.

Meanwhile, as at 7 pm on Sunday, Kwara has 401 confirmed COVID-19 cases – 208 active, 179 discharged and 14 deaths.
