Ondo State Government has taken active steps to take care of emergencies as the dreaded corona virus, plaguing the world.
It has put in place a purpose built infectious disease hospital , in Akure, to handle eventualities that might come up from time to time.
Inspecting the facility, the Governor and his team were clad in special outfit for the environment.
The Governor disclosed that though it was not a new structure, as moslems had been using the facility to converge for pilgrimages, they had been relocated to an equally befitting facility. “But we have improved on a lot of things here to the level that anyone that gets here will know that we are ready. Another thing that’s new here is that before we came on board , we didn’t have this laboratory here. We have to build this labaroty for us to be able to test people. It’s a purpose built Laboratory ‘’. The Governor said the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control had been of immense assistance in putting the centre together to its expected standard. “The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has helped us in putting some things together here’’.
