8 Doctors Test Positive For Covid-19 In Zamfara by agwom(m): 4:29pm On May 20
Eight doctors are confirmed to have tested positive for coronavirus in Zamfara, the state’s branch of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) has said.

The NMA vice chairman in the state, Dr Mannir Bature, told journalists on Wednesday, “Out of about 80 confirmed cases recorded so far in the state, 10 per cent are doctors who came into contact with the virus in the line of duty while trying to save lives especially at emergencies.

“We are however happy to note that out of the number, sixty per cent have been discharged from hospital while the remaining are fast responding to treatment,” he said. Dr Bature also said 30 other doctors who came into contact with their infected colleagues went into self isolation in order to curb further spread of the virus in the state.

“This situation has seriously caused negative impact on the performance of doctors in the state, especially in this period of the pandemic because we only have a total of about 300 doctors in the state, including those at the Federal Medical Centre, Gusau, those at state government health facilities and those in private practice.

“This is partly why as an association we proposed to the state government under the leadership of Governor Bello Matawalle to engage more doctors and other health personnel as well as sponsor the training of indigent students in medicine so as to boost the number of doctors and improve the healthcare indices of the state,” he stated.

When you have a dull and lifeless Sudanese clone at the helm of your affairs, this is what you get.

Nigerians have the capabilities to create and invent but they are only needed abroad. The locals are tossed under moist carpets because they are from a different tribe even if they have The Da Vinci Code.

Doctors have no protection. They need PPE. Simple things that local manufacturers can produce. Doctors need proper hospitals not makeshift isolation centers.
Doctors are not recognized in the country. You cannot close your eyes and name a famous Nigerian doctor who became famous and celebrated. Because Mohammed placed more emphasis on dagger than surgical gloves.

Even Hospitals are not safe these days...

Now I imagine going for a Covid-19 test, and a doctor in his protective suits and hand gloves, after testing a Covid-19 positive patient, he will use same gloves to test me. Is that not selfishness?
