EKITI State Governor Kayode Fayemi has said his administration had concluded arrangements for the take-off of the state’s COVID-19 testing centre.



He said testing for Coronavirus would begin at the centre before the end of the week.

Dr Fayemi spoke during an on-the-spot assessment of facilities at the expanded Infectious Disease Unit at the Oba Adejugbe General Hospital in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

“This week, we will be formally launching our testing centre at the teaching hospital. So, I’m confirming it to you,” he said.

Fayemi addressed reporters after the inspection.

He explained that the testing centre would help the state to test as many people as possible as part of government’s efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus.

The expansion of the state’s isolation centre to a 100-bed capacity is a proactive step to prepare against a possible surge in the number of patients.

The governor, who put the current capacity of the centre for COVID-19 patients at 10 beds, explained that the state already had 10 active patients, while the results of some contacts were being expected.

The development, according to him, has justified government’s plan to expand the centre to a 100-bed capacity.

Fayemi said: “We are expanding our infectious disease hospital’s bed space. As you know, we have just a 10-bed space in the one we are using now. But there is an increase and we have to prepare for the worse while we hope for the best.
