The lunched glass box testing centre initiated by Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun is presently one of the most talked about stress free method of testing for the coronavirus disease, the Governor who seem quite impressed with the glass box flexible testing centre shared pictures showing the glass box which he says is more protective for the health workers who are always exposed to the virus and patients infected with COVID-19 while carrying out tests on people.
He also revealed that samples from voluntary people in the state have been collected and sent for examination.
He wrote: “Our health workers have started using Nigeria’s pioneer protective glass box we installed in the Ogun State Walk-in & Drive-through Testing Centre at the Ijamido Town hall, Opposite Ansar-u-Deen Comprehensive College in Ota.
The protective glass box protects health personnel from risk of infection from persons whose samples are being taken. This is the primary advantage why the State Ministry of Health devised this equipment and method.
A number of suspected patients, who were identified or voluntarily reported, have given samples that have been transferred for testing and results will be ready for assessment in a short time.
My Deputy, @noimot.oyedele, and the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker inspected the operation, including sample collection and disinfection of gears by trained hygienists”.
