This was disclosed in a statement signed and released by the chairman of the Medical Guild, Dr Oluwajimi Sodipo.

“This has, unfortunately, led to several healthcare workers infected with COVID-19 and over 16 doctors isolated so far in the state workforce. There may be more doctors who are infected, but from the information available to us, 16 of our members are infected with COVID-19.

The current community transmission of COVID-19 has led to a situation where everyone can be designated as a COVID suspect, especially as there are asymptomatic patients as well as those with atypical symptoms.”

He, however, said the infected doctors “are doing fine and we don’t have any mortality among our members.”
