The Ogun State Government has launched the method it is adopting for sample collection at its drive-through testing centre in Ota.
It was explained by the tour guide that the method was adopted so that the risk faced by health workers is reduced to the minimum.
“The advantage of this is that the healthcare practitioner does not come in contact with the patient. Number one.
“Number two: If you are testing outside (the box), then you have to wear full PPE with boots. That cost can be up to like N50,000, and you also have to change it with each patient. So if you are testing 50 patients, that is 50 times 50,” she explained.
