It seems to be a norm that patients suspected to have corona virus are now being rejected by various public and even private hospitals in Nigeria despite several warning against this by the federal Government.
Several cases have been sprouted out in Abuja about patients who were rejected treatment in hospitals because of fear of the virus. Some hospitals turn away patients from issues ranging from insufficient and ineffective equipments and lack of medical personnel to care for both the covid-19 patients and those suffering from other illness to risking their own lives.
I think the rejection of patients will continue until the Federal Government provides adequate supplies and more hands to help medical personnel to effectively treat patients with the virus, or what do you think will help to stop or reduce the number of people rejected in public hospitals?
What other ways can this situation be helped? Are the isolation centers still functioning?
