The Lagos State Government recently commissioned a newly-equipped 150-bed isolation facility at the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba.
The private sector coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) donated the facility to help complement the government’s effort in combating the spread of the virus.
With the new isolation centre, the bed-capacity in Lagos state has risen from 647 to 797.
While commissioning the isolation centre, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said that the facility will help the state in tackling the pandemic.
“Today, we unveiled a 150-bed isolation centre at the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba which increases our capacity to tackle the spread of COVID19. We thank the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID19 for delivering this well equipped facility.
“Lagos is rising to the task of beating back COVID19 because of the work of our amazing health workers, private partners, @NCDCgov, the Federal Government, and residents who follow the strict guidelines we have laid down,” he said in a statement.
