About one hundred and thirteen (113) frontline health workers have contracted the novel Coronavirus in Nigeria.
This was announced by the country’s Health Minister, Dr. Osagie Ehanire while updating Nigerians on the government’s fight against the virus.
He dismissed reports that suggest 300 doctors have been infected with the disease, urging people to disregard it as fake news.
According to him, majority of the infected doctors and nurses are working in private hospitals with no Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and no accreditation to treat Coronavirus patients.
“As for 300 doctors testing positive, that is feeble; there are not so many people in the health sector who are infected. The latest figure we have is that they are about 113 actually and this 113 are not all public health workers; a good number are from private hospitals,” he said.
