Lagos State Government has pleaded with Lagosians who have tested positive for Coronavirus not to flee their homes whenever officials come to pick them up for isolation centres.
The state’s Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi who made the appeal on Friday at Coronavirus press briefing said some patients would switch off their phones and run away as they avoid being taken to isolation centres.
“There is also a situation that we experience, when we test people, sometimes they find it difficult to find them. The ambulances will go into community, people will flee their homes, and they make it difficult for us to find them.
“If you have tested positive, we expect you to cooperate with us and make yourself available so that you can be admitted and accessed.
“Our isolation facilities are really comfortable, it is not like the Ebola days, we have made a lot of improvements.
“Members of the executive and senior people in government have been admitted into those facilities. If I test positive, I will go to one of those facilities” Abayomi said.
