Lagos to Test All Families in Search of Coronavirus Patients

Lagos State Government stated they have launched a house-to-house search across all families for Corona virus patients.

This was contained in a statement from the Lagos Ministry of Health released today.

According to the statement, the Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi says that the ‘Community Active Case Serach’ is expected to run for two weeks in the first instance across the state.

He said, “In the coming days, some of our health workers will be moving around in pairs to administer an electronic questionnaire at homes and healthcare facilities to make enquiries about symptoms of cough, cold and fever.

“This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of COVID-19 in different communities across the State. I implore you to give them your maximum support by providing accurate information that would help in containing this pandemic quickly.”
