The Lagos state government has accredited three private hospitals for treatment and management of Coronavirus cases. 

Lagos Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi who made the announcement during a press briefing, said the accredited hospitals passed a biosecurity compliance test which was designed to reduce the risk of transmission of infectious diseases. 

He added that the accredited hospitals will still be under the supervision of the Lagos State Government Ministry of Health.

Abayomi said; 

“They have passed the biosecurity compliance test. They have made modifications to their hospitals so that their staff and other patients are not put in danger or exposed to a higher risk of contracting COVID-19. 

“Those private hospitals have passed the test and we are just in the process of issuing them with accreditation certificate so that they can start managing COVID19 patients in the private sector.

“However, even if they are managing COVID19 in the private sector, it still comes under the supervision of the Lagos State Government Ministry of Health.

“Also, information about every patient managed by the hospitals must be made available to us so that we can record it in our database.

“COVID-19 remains a public crisis and all public crises are managed and supervised by the Lagos state government and by extension the federal government of Nigeria.”
