We Spend 1 million Naira Daily On every COVID-19 Patient With grave symptoms- Lagos Government

The Government of Lagos state revealed yesterday that it spends between 100,000- 1million naira for Coronavirus Patients with severe symptoms.

The total number of confirmed covid-19 cases in Lagos has now increased to 14,000
The Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, revealed the cost for the Patients treatment in a briefing yesterday.

He said;

“To treat mild-to-moderate case patients in our isolation centre is somewhere in the region of N100,000 per day.

“That gives you an idea of the amount of money the government is spending on COVID-19 isolation facilities and COVID-19 care.

“If you require high care or intensive care, that amount can go up to anything from N500,000 to even a million naira per day, depending on the complications of the case.

“Do you need ventilation, dialysis, intravenous antibiotics… Every case is different; so, it is difficult to calculate exactly how much a patient in high care or intensive care would cost.

“We are working on the rate and we would make it available when it’s ready.”

The cost he arrived at, factored in treatment, cost of feeding, accommodation and the services provided by the healthcare givers, etc.
