 COVID-19: Eight Medical Doctors Test Positive In Zamfara

The Nigeria Medical Association in Zamfara state has confirmed that eight doctors have tested positive to the COVID-19.

The Vice-Chairman of the NMA in the state, Dr Mannir Bature said the eight doctors were infected in the line of duty at various public hospitals in the state.

He, however, called on the Zamfara State Ministry of Health to provide medical workers serving in all the public hospitals in the state with personal protective equipment rather than providing such to only those working at the isolation centres.

Dr Bature also called for improved hazard allowances for medical doctors and other health workers that are involved in the management of the coronavirus pandemic in the state.
