One of the largest private hospitals in Lagos, St. Nicholas, has shut down its Lagos Island branch. 

In a statement signed by its clinical director, Ebun Bamgboye, the hospital said the decision was as a result of exposure to COVID-19.

“The safety of all our staff and patients is of paramount importance to us. As such, we are complying with the directive of the HEFAMAA (Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency) to suspend our services for 2 weeks (Saturday 18th April 2020 — Saturday 2? May 2020),” the hospital said.

“We understand the critical needs of our patients, hence we have introduced our telemedicine services where patients can consult our doctors via video and audio channels by calling.”

Sources tell NewsWireNGR that “two nurses and senior staff member tested positive for COVID-19 from exposure to a patient but contact tracing is ongoing”.
