SWITZERLAND, JULY 13 – 35 medical doctors have tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Kwara State.
Kolade Sholageru, Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association in the state, disclosed this on Monday while addressing journalists on the activities of the union.
The NMA chairman, who cautioned residents of the state that COVID-19 is real, added that they should disregard rumours saying the pandemic was only a money-making avenue for the government.
He said, “Residents should help the doctors to help them by not paying unnecessary visits or consultations to hospitals.
“For now, people should avoid visiting the hospital except for life-threatening issues. We advise people to engage in e-health service instead of physical consultation to avoid contact as much as possible.
“People should stop unnecessary visits to patients in the hospital. Those who follow patients waiting to be attended to are not encouraged for now.”
