Osibogun gives FG kudos on COVID-19 handling

The Federal Government deserves commendation for the management and containment of Coronavirus, a community health expert, Prof. Akin Osibogun has asserted.

He said with the challenges of testing and other logistics, the country has recorded remarkable success compared to advanced countries as Brazil, United States and Britain.

Prof. Abisogun ,vice president post graduate college of medicine, said the low infection rate in Nigeria could not be a factor of hot weather. He said such trend may be ascribed to genetic factors and diet and other local factors yet to be identified by science.

He was keynote speaker at the 2020 annual week of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital and emphasised the need for team work and proper communication by all medical workers.

No fewer than 140 staffers of LUTH were recognised for their roles in the management of COVID-19 cases at the hospital.
