Lagos State Govt. Seal Illegal Covid-19 Lab In Banana Island.

On Saturday, the Lagos State Ministry of Health, said it had shut down the operations of a private laboratory in Banana Island carrying out COVID-19 tests without the required government approval.

The Ministry said the lab, Acouns Medical Laboratory and Diagnostic Centre, was also situated in a pharmacy.

In a series of Tweets the Ministry of Health advised citizens “to desist from patronising health facilities not accredited by the Lagos state government or management of COVID-19 cases as this poses danger to the community and staff of such facilities.”

The Ministry added that it will “continue to do its best to ensure that health facilities in the State adhere strictly to standards to guarantee the health and wellbeing of Lagosians.”
