The Medical Guild says three of its members at Alimosho General Hospital and Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, have tested positive for COVID-19.
Chairman and Secretary of the guild respectively, Oluwajimi Sodipo and Ismail Ajibowo, made this known in Lagos on the Instagram account of the guild.
Medical Guild is an umbrella body of doctors under the employment of the Lagos State Government.
They said the medical conditions of their three members were stable, and were enjoying the support of the guild.
“Since the incident, we have been working with our representatives in those centres, and the Medical Directors of the facilities to ensure testing of those involved.
“This is with a plan for care in the unfortunate incident of positive cases,” they said.
The guild leaders said they would engage the state government on the need to designate all doctors as the frontline workers, provide them with adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) and incentives due to risks they were exposed to.
They expressed optimism that the engagement with the government would be favourable.
