The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to say that some private buildings and hotels in the state have been converted into isolation centres to ensure that coronavirus patients are well taken care of.
He revealed this while briefing the press in the state today.
According to him, he has also decided to withhold information on the location of these centres to prevent stigmatization from the general public.
He added that another isolation centre would be open for the health workers very soon to make things easier for the frontliners amid the pandemic.
His words, “There have been several conversations. People wrote that Lagos is out of bed spaces, but the very next day we opened another isolation centre. We are opening another isolation centre for the health workers.
“We have other isolation centres that are not known to the media because they are private properties. They are private hotels. We do not want a situation where post-COVID, it becomes a stigmatised place. People are going there and they are getting well.”
