Mackenzie Sky Blog reports that a total of 20 resident doctors at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, UATH, have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Association of Resident Doctors, ARD, University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, UATH chapter, disclosed this through its president, Dr. Abah Robert, during a visit to Anawim Orphanage Home, in Gwagwalada to mark the association’s annual health week in Abuja

Dr. Robert who said over 25 doctors were exposed to the disease, also expressed happiness that no coronavirus related death has been recorded so far.

He explained that the inclusion of an orphanage visit and school medical outreach in the association’s 2020 health week was the medical doctors’ way of appreciating God for preserving the lives of all members of the association amidst the risk of exposure to the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We as doctors have also been exposed and infected but we thank God we lost no life within our own community and that is the very much reason why we decided to offer back to God in Thanksgiving by giving back to the community, especially to those who do not have at all.

“I can authoritatively tell you not less than 25 of our members have been exposed to COVID-19 and I can also tell you that not less than 20 were infected. 

“Some had a mild infection but for some, the level of infection was high that they needed to be admitted. We thank and appreciate God we lost no life, everybody recuperated very well and we have them back,” Dr. Robert said. 

While hailing the federal government and the hospital management’s efforts to ensure the provision of Personal Protective Equipments, PPE’s, for the doctors, he however requested for more. 

The medical expert appealed to the federal government for an improved remuneration and sponsorship of activities embarked upon by the resident doctors, in order to help provide a smooth and comfortable environment for their training.
