Lagos Uncovers 119 With Coronavirus Symptoms In A 2 Day House To House Search

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, at a press briefing on Tuesday said a total of 118,000 households had been reached and 119 people with COVID-19 symptoms have been identified in the state.







“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.

“But let me remind you that COVID-19 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,”

  2. Stella please don’t be alarmed. Trust most Nigerians have underlying health problems that they don’t know about or don’t go for treatment.
    I don’t know these people but by God’s grace it won’t be the virus.

      If you choose to create panic as I have always noticed you do, take it somewhere else.
      What do you expect me to write? “oh our doom is near?” My husband is out there saving lives and I am here praying and hoping he comes back safe as well as everyone he treats to get better...So yes I will keep giving hope to everyone.

    1. Olodo did they say all those people have it? Wonder the kind school una go. So they should not test those people to be sure of what they really have,knowing some symptoms are similar to that of covid-19?

  12. I find this hard to believe. Alot of nigerian are recovering well and fast from this virus unlike other countries. I might be wrong but i think what we call covid -19 here is probably malaria related diseases. I dont think we have been able to detect this particular virus. I believe the virus is real and dangerous too. # healtheworld.
