At least two of Nigeria’s biggest companies have advised their staff members to avoid certain private hospitals in Lagos, which are believed to have been contaminated by the coronavirus. This comes as some private hospitals in the city have temporarily suspended their operations due to fear of contamination.
On Monday, Vevic Lifecare Hospital in Lekki, Lagos, informed the public that its management has decided to suspend operations for approximately ten days. According to a statement that was made available by the hospital, the decision became necessary after a Covid-19 patient was inadvertently admitted at the facility, even as two hospital staff members ended up contracting the deadly virus.
