Six private hospitals in Lagos State have shut down operations after some workers were exposed to COVID-19.
The State government on Monday decontaminated the hospitals and placed them under lock for two weeks.
The hospitals include: St Nicholas, Lagos Island branch; First Cardiology Consultants Hospital, Ikoyi (where Abba Kyari died.) St Edwards Hospital, Ajah, Vedic Lifecare Hospital, Lekki; County Hospital, Ogba and Premier Specialist Hospital, Victoria Island.
Prof Akin Abayomi, Lagos State Commissioner for Health had revealed that Kyari died from complications of COVID-19 at First Cardiology Consultants in Lagos State which is listed among the hospitals above.
One of the hospitals, Vevic Lifecare Hospital in Lekki, in a statement announced that the management suspended operations for approximately ten days.
It said the decision became necessary after a COVID-19 patient was inadvertently admitted at the facility and two hospital staff members contracted the deadly virus.
The staff and family members who visited the hospital or had been in contact with anyone who visited any of the above-listed hospitals were advised to self-isolate and call the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
The management of St. Nicholas Hospital has also announced that it will be suspending services for two weeks in its Lagos Island branch following an exposure to COVID-19.
