We are struggling for bed spaces – NCDC DG

PublishedBy: in NewsApril 30, 2020


Chikwe Ihekweazu,  Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, has admitted that the health agency is currently struggling for bed spaces to accommodate coronavirus patients in Nigeria.

He made this statement at the daily media briefing of the Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19 on Thursday.

Ihekweazu was responding to a question on the lack of bed spaces for COVID-19 patients across the country.

The DG  explained that the biggest challenge right now is the state of Lagos, where bed spaces are tight.

His words “We are struggling at the moment for bed spaces.

“Especially Lagos and to an extent, Kano and Abuja too, but the biggest challenge right now is Lagos, where bed spaces are really tight.

“Across the country, we have about 3,500 bed spaces identified as available for COVID-19.

“But ultimately, we might have to change our strategy a little bit and start considering home care in certain circumstances.”
