Lagos State government has commenced plan to establish make shift isolation centres in different locations within the state. This is in a bid to make the isolation centres closer to the people. In line with that decision, the state in partnership with Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB) has set up a new isolation and treatment centre at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena (formerly Onikan Stadium) as additional measure to handle the Coronaviris (Covid-19) pandemic.
The Onikan Isolation centre might be ready to use in 2 to 3 days considering the increasing cases of people with Corona Virus.
According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), there are currently 65 confirmed cases in Nigeria, 44 of which are in Lagos as at 26th March 2020.
