Ogun State Government have launched a protective glass box for coronavirus ‘Walk-in & Drive-through Testing’ at the Ijamido Town hall, Opposite Ansar-u-Deen Comprehensive College in Ota.
Governor Dapo Abiodun, who disclosed this on his Twitter page, said the protective glass box makes sure that the healthcare practitioner does not come in contact with the patient.
According to hm, the primary advantage why the State Ministry of Health devised this equipment and method is for the protective glass box to protect health personnel from risk of infection from persons whose samples are being taken.
This is how it works:
“A health worker would go into a protective glass box and collect samples from suspected cases with fixed gloves that are sanitised by a hygienist after each sample is taken for further transfer to the State’s molecular laboratory.”
