The Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), has warned that the second wave of Covid-19 is easily transmittable and deadlier.
LUTH in an advisory issued by its Chief Medical Director, Professor Chris Bode, warned Nigerians to adhere to all Covid-19 safety measures.
Professor Bode stated that the hospital has seen an upsurge of people treating malaria instead of going for Covid-19 test. Adding that most of the people that have died from the disease went to the hospital late for diagnosis and treatment.
The advisory read in part,
“Unlike whhat we witnessed in the first wave, this one is even more easily transmitted and deadlier too.
“It’s therefore imperative for everyone first and foremost to accept that Covid-19 pandemic is not over and we must prepare to confront it all over again.
“This is not to alarm the people, but rather, but to alert us all to what is happening and call on each person to do again what we have done well before. Every life is precious and implore Nigerians to do whatever is needed to save our people”.
