The first Nigerian professor of Environmental Health Sciences and founder of Child Health Environment and Safety Trust (CHEST), Godson Ana, has explained why the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University College Hospital (UCH), Prof. Jesse Otegbayo, and Provost and Deputy Provost of University of Ibadan tested positive to Coronavirus.
Ana, who disclosed this at a press conference at Agbowo area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, said that what happened at the premier university and premier teaching hospital was beyond merely observing personal hygiene.
The professor said: “On the CMD and Provost and Deputy Provost, it goes beyond the issue of hygiene because at that level, there are very experienced, exposed and learned persons and they observed all these things. But you see, there are certain positions you occupy that you take a lot of risks. I must tell you that these are persons that have put in everything that they have because of the members of the public. And because of the role they play, they expose to a lot of hazards.
