Commissioning of Lagos State Isolation Center

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, The governor of Lagos State unveil why the center will be located at Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, as part of the government’s reaction to COVID-19 and preparation for other infectious diseases that might come after the pandemic.

And this took place on Sunday at the official launch of the 150-bed Mainland Infectious Disease Isolation Centre donated by the Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) to the state.

The Governor stated how the government will also build Doctors’ Quarters and permanent isolation wards to ramp up capacity for any infectious disease outbreak in Lagos, as part of the global masterplan for the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba.

To Overcome COVID-19:

Recently in the State, ”we are seeing too many things coming up in our Infectious Disease hospital and we are committed that this hospital’s post COVID19 would see a purpose-built international infectious disease research centre; of which designs have been made”, said the Governor.

He further said, ”We will also be building purpose-built isolation wards, we will ramp up our the basic facilities and installation needed and capacity for future necessity”. And commended CACOVID for the donation of the state-of-art 150-bed Isolation centre to Lagos, saying that the facility would certainly add to the state’s capacity and enable it to do a lot more in the war against COVID-19.

According to Governor Sanwo-Olu, the latest donated structure is about the sixth or seventh structured isolation center in Lagos.

The Governor, however, noted that beyond putting up isolation facilities for COVID-19 case management, it was important for citizens to understand the need to take full responsibility against the pandemic, ”It is not a function of how many isolation beds that are built but a case of ourselves taking responsibility and understanding that this virus knows no age, colour or race.

COVID-19 is real and we owe it a duty to tell our people to be very cautious and take precautionary measures and ensure that it is only when we do all of these things that we can overcome this pandemic!
