COVID-19: Lagos State Begins House-to-house Case Search


Report says, the Lagos State Government has begun house-to-house contact tracing  to identify possible cases of COVID-19 in the State.

This was discovered in a statement released by the Lagos Ministry of Health on Thursday.

The statement quoted the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, as saying this during a joint ministerial press briefing on COVID-19 intervention in Lagos State held on Thursday in Alausa, Ikeja.

Abayomi said the COVID-19 case identification campaign tagged the ‘Community Active Case Search’ and  is expected to run for two weeks in the first instance across the state.

He further said 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.”
