20 doctors contract Coronavirus in Kwara state within three weeks

 

20 doctors have contracted COVID-19 within the past three weeks in Kwara State.

 

President of the Association of Resident Doctors (ARD) of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Dr Badmus Habeeb, disclosed this to Channels Television during a phone interview on Wednesday January 13.

 

Habeeb who said the association are battling with the pandemic “based on the available resources”,  noted that the discovery of vaccines have brought hope and relief for everyone.

 

He however lamented that there is a poor resource setting in the country, where the necessities to make the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines easy and possible are not readily available.

 

The UITH-ARD President said the vaccines have so far proven to be effective and therefore, urged Nigerians to get vaccinated when it arrives while adhering strictly to other COVID-19 guidelines.

 

He said;

 

“About 20 of our members have become infected in the last two to three weeks.

“I must reiterate that this is not the best of times for us, our families and the affected patients.

“So, it seems we may never be able to get the vaccine anytime soon. The public should adhere strictly to the laid down guidelines on the prevention of COVID-19 by NCDC.”
