Akin Abayomi: We Identified 119 People With COVID-19 Symptoms by Welrez(m): 11:18pm On Apr 14, 2020
Akin Abayomi, commissioner for health in Lagos state, says a total of 118,000 households have been reached in the active case search of possible COVID-19 cases in communities.

At a media briefing on Tuesday, the commissioner said community search was activated to limit the spread of the disease in the state which has the highest number of COVID-19 patients in the country.

Abayomi said 110 persons were found with symptoms of coronavirus but tests are being conducted to determine their status.

“We’ve embarked on an active case search in communities. The idea is to go to hot spots and go from door to door with our health personnel. So far, in the last two days, we’ve visited 118,000 households and we’re looking for the typical symptoms of COVID-19. We’ve identified about 119 people who have the symptoms that are suggestive of COVID-19,” he said.

“But let me remind you that COVID is one of the viruses that can cause respiratory symptoms. There are many viruses. So, the idea is to take samples from these 119 and analyse them and that would give us an idea of how much COVID-19 activity is happening in the communities.”

The exercise tagged “Community Active Case Search” was announced by the commissioner last week, and it is expected to run for an initial period of two weeks.

He said those identified to have COVID-19 will be taken to the isolation centres, in order to reduce the opportunities for transmission.

As of April 13, 2020, Lagos has recorded 192 confirmed cases of COVID-19 out of which 7o persons have been discharged and six deaths recorded.

A total of 343 confirmed COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in 19 states and the federal capital territory (FCT).

Jokers! I'm weary about the government and not this coronavirus crap! How come malaria, typhoid and other fevers disappeared in Nigeria just like that? Nobody is having them again. All ailments are now coronavirus.

This is quite proactive, cos a lot of people may already have the disease and would not want to willingly contact NCDC!

Over the Radio yesterday, Nigerians were busy saying is not our portion, God forbid and calling Melinda Gate a prophet of doom just because she said the overwhelming truth..it baffles me how Africans think they are more special to God than the rest of the world. I just pray some how we are immune to this virus maybe due to our weather or body system otherwise USA and Italy would be a child's play.. With the poor measures our government have put in place and the attitude of the populace, we are doomed for sure.

May God help us all. Amen

ProfDview1:


Yes sir.. God forbid prophet of doom called Melinda gate, her wish will be for her family not Nigerians.
U can bliv the shit she said but in Jesus name, we rebuke it... Shit


Always eating white shit like dogs


Imagine it was a Nigerian, an influential one dt said she sees corpse on the street of America b4 America became this worst, u same foolish Nigerians wud av blasted her but reverse is the case u bliv Melinda
To hell with you alll. Enemies of the country
Don't feel attacked if u ain't one... Just let it slide

take it easy bro, she has compassion for us, what she is saying is OK but just for us to avert it when we support govt/ourselves to win this battle. It is only grace that is keeping the official low in Nigeria low till now. Let us sustain the fight and possibly improve on it to fight the enemy of humanity called Covid-19
