No fewer than 11 health workers, including four doctors and three nurses at the Randle General Hospital, Surulere, Lagos State, have been tested for the COVID-19 infection after having contact with a dead patient.
The PUNCH had exclusively reported that a 65-year-old woman, identified as Iyabo, was admitted to the hospital last Sunday.
The petty trader, who also had diabetes, was said to have been treated before some doctors insisted that she be tested for the coronavirus.
She was later taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, where she was rejected after the medical officers allegedly said she did not fit a COVID-19 case. (Text and photo courtesy Punch)
