The Kwara State Commissioner for Health, Dr Raji Abdulrazaq on Friday confirmed that all 80 officers of the Kwara State Rapid Response Team (RRT) had tested negative to COVID-19.
“This attests to the excellent adherence to the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) and other safety protocols.
“By all standards, we are doing very well in the management of the pandemic. This is due largely to the unquantified support the committee gets from the Governor and the understanding of our health workers,” he said.
He dismissed claims of non-availability or shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as unfounded, adding that the government was always suppling the equipment.
“Similarly, Kwara is one of those few states that are conducting as many tests as possible to ascertain the status of our people and prevent community spread.
“Our contact tracing and rumour management are one of the best in the country as attested to by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC),” Abdulrazaq said.
