The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, inaugurated a 70-bed COVID-19 Isolation and Treatment Centre located within the premises of Landmark Exhibition Centre in Eti-Osa Local Government Area.
The centre has a ten-bed intensive care isolation unit, four ventilators, monitors, respirators, mobile x-ray, ultrasound and oxygen equipment.
Mr Sanwo-Olu, at the unveiling, said the facility would provide additional capacity to support the already existing isolation facilities in the state.
He said the facility signifies a working and fruitful collaboration between the public and the private sector.
The governor maintained that the facility was a clear demonstration and commitment of his administration to an all-inclusive system of governance.
“What we have seen here today is another demonstration of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) collaboration between the State government and a Consortium; the Young President Organisation which is peopled by crop of professionals from different fields coming together to fund this laudable project,” he said.
While commending YPO for the project, Mr Sanwo-Olu said the facility had been taken over by the state government but would be operated by the government in collaboration with the organisation.
