CACOVID donates 150-bed isolation facility to Lagos
The Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) has donated a 150-bed isolation center and medical equipment worth millions of naira to the Lagos State Government.
Speaking at the inauguration of the center in Yaba on Sunday, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said it would assist the state government to enhance its COVID-19 pandemic response.
While commending CACOVID for the donation, Sanwo-Olu pledged that it would be judiciously used to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the state, and indeed Nigeria.
He, therefore, urged the citizens to continue to take responsibility by following preventive measures and directive of the government toward reducing the spread of the virus and saving lives.
“We need to take responsibility because the virus knows no race, ethnicity, religion, or boundary.
“Take responsibility for your loved ones by wearing face masks, maintaining social distancing, and hand hygiene to reduce morbidity and mortality,” the governor said.
