Ogun re-opens two hospitals closed over

LASSA

The two privately owned hospitals in Ogun state, which were closed down for treating a victim of Lassa fever have been re-opened and certified safe to provide health care services to the people.

Ogun State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye made this known at the weekend during a visit to the Central Specialist Hospital and Rubee Medical Center in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the State.

Ipaye, in a statement said the step was necessary to disabuse the mind of the public against stigmatizing the hospitals and members of staff, adding that the World Health Organization Standard of fumigating and decontaminating was strictly adhered to by the State Government in the process of carrying out the exercise.

Appreciating the Medical Directors of the two hospitals for managing the situation very well, Ipaye said if not for the pro-activeness of the two hospitals in informing the State Ministry of Health, the matter could have gotten out of hand, hence putting many innocent lives at risk.
