COVID 19: Lagos State Govt Commences House to House Search for Infected Persons (Updated: 2 years ago)


Lagos State Government says it has commenced a house to house search for individuals infected with COVID-19 in the state.

The state Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, who disclosed this during a joint Press briefing on COVID-19 intervention held in Alausa, Ikeja on Thursday April 9, stated that the Coronavirus case identification campaign tagged the ‘Community Active Case Search’ commenced on Monday April 6, 2020 and is expected to run for two weeks in the first instance across the State.

He explained that health workers during this time will move from house to house, including health facilities, in pairs to administer electronic questionnaires on citizens, adding that the questions to be administered border on COVID-19 symptoms.

Abayomi stressed that the officials carrying out the exercise can be identified with the COVID-19 Outbreak Response tags and letter from the Local Government.

According to him,

“In the coming days, some of our health workers will be moving around in pairs to administer an electronic questionnaire at homes and healthcare facilities to make inquiries about symptoms of cough, cold and fever.

This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of COVID-19 in different communities across the State. I implore you to give them your maximum support by providing accurate information that would help in containing this pandemic quickly”
