COVID-19: Private Hospital Doctor Tests Positive For Coronavirus In Ekiti


Ekiti State government on Tuesday said a doctor working with a state-owned private hospital has tested Coronavirus positively, increasing the number of reported cases to four in the state.

Commissioner for Health in the state, Dr Mojisola Yaya-Kolade, who made the disclosure on Tuesday while addressing journalists in the state capital of Ado-Ekiti, said the doctor had contracted the disease while treating an expectant 29-year-old woman who was suffering from the pandemic.

The woman, who is a health official with the government of Lagos state, was identified last Saturday as the third case in Ekiti.

Yaya-Kolade said, “Yes, we have a positive test doctor who is being treated at the isolation center but others have been negative.”
