The Lagos State government has decentralised the testing centres for coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Health, Oreoluwa Finnih, announced this in a tweet on Saturday.
Finnih, a public health advocate, explained that the facilities were located across the 20 local government areas of the state.
Some documents attached to the tweet revealed the addresses and contact numbers of the testing centres.
In another tweet on Sunday, the State Ministry of Health said the COVID-19 response effort has moved into communities.
It urged the residents in various local governments to locate the testing centre closest to them through app.alertclinic.com
The ministry advised the residents to request a test and choose where they are in Lagos and share their feedbacks.
According to the government, this is part of efforts to curtail the spread of coronavirus which has killed 19 people in Nigeria.
