Dr Bowale Abimbola, the Chief Medical Director of Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, has reportedly tested positive for Coronavirus.
According to a report from SaharaReporters, Dr Abimbola is presently being treated in one of the wards in the hospital.
“Yes, he is positive, that’s why you haven’t seen him in public unlike before. It was even Dr Nifemi Bella Oloniniyi that received honourable members of Lagos State House of Assembly during their visit to our facility. I was told he had a meeting with someone who later showed symptoms of COVID-19, so his samples were immediately taken for test and his results returned positive last week,” a source told SaharaReporters.
Dr Abimbola was actively involved in managing the Italian man who was Nigeria’s COVID-19 Index case.
