Authorities in Abuja have shut two of the four isolation centres that cater for coronavirus patients in the Nigerian capital, Weetalknaija Daily Post has learnt.
COVID-19 isolation centres located inside Karu and Asokoro general hospitals are now closed following the reduction in the number of patients.
Only the treatment centres in Idu and THISDAY Dome will now hold COVID-19 patients in Abuja.
There has been a significant reduction in the number of daily infections across Nigeria’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
For about a month, the West African nation has been recording daily figures below 300, an indication that the country is heading for a plateau in its epidemiological curve.
Health authorities, however, warn against relaxing, as low testing is still being witnessed across the country.
“One critical issue is the number of tests being done, and yes the number of tests has actually declined,” the director-general of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu, said at a Presidential TaskForce on COVID-19 briefing.
There has also an increase in the number of patients being discharged across isolation facilities in the country.
