Nma Speaks On Hospitals Rejecting Coronavirus Patient
(1.5k )
The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Anambra chapter, has said there was no reported case of hospitals in the state rejecting or ejecting patients on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Jide Onyekwelu, Chairman of NMA, Anambra Taskforce on COVID-19, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.

Onyekwelu said although there were real fears among health workers over COVID-19, the association had met with the state government to design case definitions for the virus and also preventive measures in the management of possible cases.

The NMA also said it had not received any report of doctors who were relieved of their duty but pointed out that some institutions might decide to streamline their staff strength in the wake of the crisis.

“There is indeed a real fear among doctors, but there is no record of any patient who was turned back in the state.

“NMA members have met with the state government to develop a case definition, and this will reduce the fear among practitioners.

”We have also said that every hospital should have one or two-room isolation points where patients are kept to reduce the contact area,” he said.

Meanwhile, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Nigeria is 343 across 19 states, as reported by the NCDC on Monday night.
