House-to-house identification of COVID19 patients set to commence in Lagos

In a statement from the Lagos State Ministry of Health on Thursday, the minister of health, Prof. Akin Abayomi said that the state has finalized plans to commence a house-to-house COVID19 case identification campaign, tagged the ”Community Active Case Search”, which would last for two weeks in the first instance.

He pointed out that the officials carrying out the exercise can be identified with the COVID-19 outbreak response tags and letter from the Local Government.

“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”, he said.
