Lagos state set To commence House-to-House Search for Symptomatic Persons

Despite on going lockdown in the state to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus the number of confirmed cases in Lagos is on an increase. The state government yesterday unfolded plans to begin a house-to-house search to identify those suspected of being infected with the virus.

Lagos state Ministry of Health in a statement made it known that the exercise, tagged the ‘Community Active Case Search,’ which will be phased, will last for two weeks in the first lap, and would cover all the 20 local government areas in the state.

Lagos has the highest confirmed cases in the country with about 158 of the 288. Yesterday, data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) showed that there were 14 new cases of COVID-19 in the country with 13 coming from Lagos.

However, seven more COVID-19 patients were discharged from the Mainland Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, rallying the number of treated and virus-free patients in the state to 39. But 51 of the infected have been discharged and seven deaths recorded nationwide.

And as the controversy over the visit of the Chinese medical team to Nigeria raged on yesterday, the NCDC dismissed claims by critics of the team’s mission to Nigeria that the medical supplies they brought from China were contaminated with the virus and could aggravate the pandemic in the country, if used.
