The Lagos State Government has commenced house-to-house search for possible cases of COVID-19 within the State.
The Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, said this on Thursday, during a joint ministerial press briefing on COVID-19 intervention in Lagos State.
Abayomi said that the COVID-19 case identification campaign would run for two weeks in the first instance across the state.
He explained that the officials carrying out the exercise would be identified with the COVID-19 outbreak response tags and letter from the Local Government.
He said, “In the coming days, some of our health workers will be moving around in pairs to administer an electronic questionnaire at homes and healthcare facilities to make enquiries about symptoms of cough, cold and fever.
“This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of COVID-19 in different communities across the state. I implore you to give them your maximum support by providing accurate information that would help in containing this pandemic quickly.”
