The Lagos State Government has activated the oxygen plant at the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH), Yaba. 

“In the midst of increasing #COVID19 cases, we have some good news from our Infectious Diseases Hospital,” Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State tweeted on his handle on Sunday.

“We have activated a new oxygen plant which will help by providing much needed oxygen to patients. The plant will supplement oxygen supply to about 300 cylinders per day and 6 cylinders per hour.”

He reiterated that the Lagos State Government is working to ensure all COVID-19 patients in the commercial centre get the best care.

As the number of cases continue to rise in Lagos State and Nigeria, Governor Sanwo-Olu, however, warned people against thinking that the virus is a hoax.

“Lagosians, #COVID19 is not a glamorous disease, neither is it a hoax,” the governor said about the disease which was first reported in Nigeria in February.

“You need to follow the safety guidelines to safeguard your friends and loved ones.”
