The lives of healthcare workers at public health facilities are increasingly being threatened following an upsurge in community transmission of the dreaded coronavirus in Nigeria.
Findings revealed that health workers in Nigeria are increasingly testing positive for COVID-19 which they contracted while attending to some patients who knowingly or otherwise were positive for the virus.
On Monday, a frontline medical doctor at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Dr. Adedayo Williams, tested positive for COVID-19.
The doctor who is the President of ARD, UCH, Ibadan, is believed to had contracted the virus while attending to a patient who had the virus and was unaware.
