Dr Kolade Solagberu, NMA Chairman, disclosed the news during a briefing on Monday in Ilorin.
”Residents should help the doctors to help them by not paying unnecessary visits or consultations to hospitals,” he said. “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 visit to patients in the hospital. Those who follow a patient waiting to be attended to, are not encouraged for now.
”You should just help us to help you because the less the number of patient we attend to, the less the chances of spreading the virus.
”This is because every patient is a potential Covid-19 case,” he said.
