476 health workers, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, laboratory staff, drivers and other auxiliary personnel, were infected with the COVID-19 since the first case was recorded in the Federal Capital Territory.
Anthony Ogunleye, Chief Press Secretary to the FCT Minister said: “There has not been any other recorded fatality of health personnel over the last one week. It is important to mention that these fatalities did not in any way affect the quality of services rendered in hospitals and most certainly not to the point of rendering skeletal services.”
Head, Media and Public Enlightenment of the FCT COVID-19 task force Comrade Ikharo Attah, issued a monitoring compliance in some shopping malls and business premises across the city, advised them to abide by the rules.
Ikharo warned that the FCTA would “not hesitate to shut down shopping malls, Maitama farmers’ market and business premises in the city that fail to comply with the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines. From what we observed, there is high compliance by costumers and visitors to these malls and business premises. Sadly, same cannot be said of the workers and operators of shops and other businesses in the malls. A situation in which owners of shops and their workers believed that the guidelines and health protocols are for costumers and visitors is highly unacceptable. The health protocols are for all to observe.”
People are strongly advised to adhere to the COVID-19 protocol; wearing masks, social distancing, and watching hands regularly or using a hand sanitizer.
