Meanwhile, the Federal Government is set to begin the repurposing of some Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) to manage COVID-19 patients across the country, especially in Lagos, Kano, and Abuja.
The establishment of Community Support Centres (CSCs) in States will ease the burden on existing isolation and treatment centres, which are currently being overwhelmed by the increase in the daily number of infection.
