See Why You Might Likely Die From COVID-19 In Lagos; Government Warns
The chances of you dying from COVID-19 in Lagos are high following the latest warning by the Lagos state government.
According to the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, he has raised the alarm that the state would soon run out of bed spaces at its isolation centers if it keeps recording a high number of COVID-19 cases.
Within the last 7-Days, a total number of 1,286 Covid-19 cases have been recorded in the state. This figure shows an alarming alarming infection rate which might greatly put more strain on the already overstretched health workers and facilities.
Professor Akin Abayomi who made this known at a press briefing yesterday said the state confirmed a total of 1,165 new cases between May 30 and June 4.
With the 121 new cases recorded yesterday, the tally for Lagos in the last seven days is now put at 1,286 On the same day, 328 new cases of Coronavirus were recorded nationwide, taking the tally to 11,844, with 3,696 discharged and 333 deaths.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Health stated that tests revealed that there are more cases than Lagos State could handle and that the state had consequently resolved to treat COVID-19 patients without symptoms at home.
Lagos State, which is the epicenter of the disease in Nigeria, now has a total of 5,663 cases.
Just as the state is battling to treat it high patient numbers. professor Abayomi has attributed the recent spike in the number of positive cases of COVID-19 in Lagos to increased testing capacity in the state.
He said: “Between May 30 when the state recorded its highest daily toll with 378 new COVID-19 cases and June 4, Lagos has confirmed a total of 1,165 new cases.
“We’ve been testing more. We’ve been escalating our capacity to test for COVID-19 and what we’ve found is that the more we test, the more we find, which is a reflection of the fact that COVID-19 is spreading within the community and we’re finding more cases than we can manage.
“If we carry on with the rate of positive testing that we are obtaining, we’re going to run out of isolation beds in our established isolation facilities.
“Therefore, we are projecting. If we keep getting 150,200 positives every day, in another two or three weeks, even though we’re opening new isolation centers all the time, in time, we’re going to run out of beds.
“And this has happened all over the world; it’s not just in Lagos or Nigeria. Every other country has reached the same tipping point where you now have to transit from managing patients in an isolation center to managing patients who are not that unwell at home and reserving the isolation centers for people who are feeling unwell and need to be monitored more closely by medical personnel.”
He added that the state was currently developing strategies for managing asymptomatic patients at home to address the projected rise in the number of cases.
As the cases of positive COVID-19 in Lagos continue to rise, the state is running out of bed spaces, there is a likely chance that the state might witness more Covid-19 related death.
Lagos State has continued to issue guidelines on the prevention of COVID-19. The state has put in place use compulsory use of masks and ensuring the practice of social-distancing.
