Ontopnaija learned that those affected were those who worked in the hospital’s medical laboratory.
It was learned that one of the workers infected his family of four when they contracted the virus through him.
A reliable source at the hospital told reporters that laboratory staff decided to get tested for COVID-19 on Friday after the death of a staff member in the medical labs section.
Of the approximately 70 tests carried out, the results of 20 returned positive, causing panic among others in OOUTH.
Meanwhile, OOUTH’s chief medical director Dr Peter Adefuye said he was unable to speak to the matter.
When contacted, Ogun State Health Commissioner Dr Tomi Coker told DAILY over the phone: “I’m in a meeting. I am here with six other people. I can’t speak at the moment. ”
