Speaking at the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday, Olorunnimbe Mamora, minister of state for health, said a significant number of states did not have the required number of bed spaces.

“Though not surprising, we are concerned about increasing number of confirmed cases. This is because, very high cases could seriously exceed the capacity of our health system to cope. Routine cases may also suffer as a result. Therefore, non-pharmaceutical preventive approach is still our best strategy,” he said.

“At present, we have a total of 112 treatment and isolation centres in all the 36 states and the federal capital territory with 5,324 beds. While only five states including the federal capital territory have at least 300 beds, as prescribed for isolation and treatment, 21 states have less than 100 bed spaces.

“As the number of cases increase, there is an urgent need to expand our treatment centres across the country. I therefore call on the state governors and philanthropists to take active and deliberate steps to scale up the number of beds for isolation and treatment of confirmed cases in their states.”
