The Lagos State Government has closed the Eti-Osa coronavirus patients’ isolation centre.

This was announced by Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu during the 17th update on the management of the coronavirus in the state.

The governor while reporting progress in curbing the diseas said the Agidingbi Isolation Centre would also be shut down and patients relocated to a large capacity centre – Indo-Centre in Anthony area, which would soon commence operation.

He said, “Over the last four, five months, we have built an excess capacity centre, but that is only the way to go, you cannot over-prepare.

“We have got to a stage where we need to balance the economics of this and which of these facilities do we need to keep running.

“Some of them now are having less than 20 per cent of occupancy.

“This is why we reached a conclusion to shut Eti-Osa facility and another one in Lekki.”

He further stated that the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Yaba “is now also gradually being reverted back to its former status as a hospital to cater to all forms of infectious diseases.”
