Lagos Uses Private Buildings For COVID-19 Isolation Centres

Due to lack of spaces, the Lagos State government has resulted in the use of private buildings for isolation centres, said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this on Monday during a media briefing, adding that the converted buildings were yet unknown to the public.

He said that the government has decided not to disclose the private properties so that they will not be stigmatised after the pandemic.

”There have been several conversations. People wrote that Lagos is out of bed spaces but the very next day we opened another isolation centre. We are opening another isolation centre for the health workers.

“We have other isolation centres that are not known to the media because they are private properties. They are private hotels.

“We do not want a situation where post-COVID, it becomes a stigmatised place. People are going there and they are getting well,” he said.
