LUTH worries over increasing severe cases of covid-19

Management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, yesterday, raised the alarm over the upsurge of severe cases of Covid-19 new infections in the hospital,  even as it expressed worry that most of the patients were on oxygen, while many others come in when they are in critical condition.

This came as the Federal Government said it was planning to begin administering the Covid-19 vaccine on Nigerians before the end of March. Following rising cases of Covid-19 and non adherence to safety protocols by residents, indications emerged, yesterday, of a possible lockdown again in Lagos State to curtail an alarming rate of the spread in the state.

Meanwhile, barely three days after a former Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof Oyewusi Ibidapo-Obe, died of complications from Covid-19, another don in the university, Prof Duro Ajeyalemi, has died in a Lagos hospital. LUTH management, which urged Nigerians to adhere to the use of none pharmaceutical guidelines, added that, the second wave of the virus has doubled back and attacking ferociously.
