Not less than 35 doctors have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Kwara state.
On Monday, Dr Kolade Solagberu, Chairman of Nigeria Medical Association in Ilorin said that the association had not recorded any casualty among its members.
He warned all state residents to be aware that the deadly virus is real and should they should slam all allegations that the pandemic was solely making money for the government.
“Residents should help the doctors to help them by not paying unnecessary visits or consultations to hospitals.
“For now, people should avoid visiting the hospital except for life-threatening issues. We advise people to engage in e-health service instead of physical consultation to avoid contact as much as possible.
“People should stop unnecessary visits to patients in the hospital. Those who follow patients waiting to be attended to are not encouraged for now.
“You should just help us to help you because the less the number of patients we attend to, the less the chances of spreading the virus. This is because every patient is a potential COVID-19 case.”
