Suspected Coronavirus Patient In Ilorin Picked Up Without Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

shocked
Oh my goodness!!
Look at these men wearing a fabric mask to pick up a suspected covid case cry

Oh my god, this is the height of irresponsibility by this government. You can't even protect your first responders, but there's PPE to be wasted on burying Abba Kyari, but no PPE to protect these frontline men ignorantly putting themselves at risk to save a life.

This is really depressing!! cry

Admin and mods need to push this to front page, urgently!!

Nigerian government needs to get her response right.

These frontline staff need to be immediately tested, and quarantined. They also need to sue the government for criminal negligence.
There's need to protect all frontline care staff. A fabric mask is useless against coronavirus and it is outrageous someone okayed for these poor men to be sent out to retrieve a coronavirus patient, wearing only a fabric mask. That is criminal!

This needs to go on front page, and urgently too.

This is a public health crisis.

I can't believe this is being allowed to happen. Imagine these returning to their families at the close of work today and the cycle of infection continues. People don't realise this is a highly infectious respiratory virus.

This is why I am against the state by state approach to tackling this crisis. The PTF and NCDC and president should make the rules about how things should be done at the national level, and every state must follow the rules. If some states handle the situation seriously, and other states are not serious, the serious states will have to remain under restrictions indefinitely to avoid being affected by people from the unserious states.

Lol
One thing they taught us about safety is you are your number 1 safety officer and common sense is the greatest safety tool .

Those health workers have themselves only to blame if they contact any sickness.
How much is raincoat
How much is rubber gloves
How much is nose mask.
How much is soap and water
Don't think of how to protect yourself as a service to humanity.
Wait for the myopic government to provide everything for you.

Nothing works here...that's why it is called Nigeria.

Someone somewhere is feeding fat on the funds meant for the provision of the PPE.

Any sane person for don tire for naija matter. The sad fact is that, the frontliners go put their lives on danger, while some idiots with big fat stomach go plunder all the resources meant for the fight against COVID-19.
