Lagos state government on Saturday announced the delivery of a 110-bed isolation facility for the management and treatment of confirmed cases of coronavirus.
The isolation facility was jointly built with Guaranty Trust Bank.
Managing Director of GTBank, Mr. Segun Agbaje, on Saturday, personally handed over the hospital facility to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The delivery came five days after the bank started the construction of the isolation centre sited on the main bowl of the Mobolaji Olufunsho Johnson Stadium in Onikan.
Governor Sanwo-Olu praised the bank’s management for the speed with which the structure was built, disclosing that the facility was equipped with “world-class” equipment and medical supplies that would aid the State Government to deliver adequate care to those infected with COVID-19.
He said: “I am very excited to take possession of this 110-bed isolation facility which the Lagos State Government and Guaranty Trust Bank have put together. In our assessment, it is a world-class facility that has been achieved within a week. Contractors at multilevel worked tirelessly to put up the structure.
