Written by admin on April 23, 2020
The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, says about 40 health workers have tested positive for coronavirus (covid-19) in the country.
Dr Ehanire disclosed this today during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
He, therefore, appealed to medical workers in the frontline of the covid-19 fight to always protect themselves while giving treatment to infected patients.
While speaking on the country’s testing capacity, the minister said the high number of new cases could be attributed to improved testing as the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control now has laboratories with the capacity to test 1,500 samples per day.
