#Coronavirus: Lagos Health Commissioner, Akin Abayomi reveals government spends N1 million per Covid-19 patient daily

Lagos State Government has said it spends between N100,000 and N1m daily on each of the COVID-19 patients in the state.

The Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, disclosed this at a media briefing on Thursday.

Abayomi explained that for mild and moderate cases, the state government spends averagely about N100,000 daily.

According to him, it costs the state government about N500,000 and N1m, to treat a patient with a serious case.

Abayomi, however, said it would be very difficult to calculate what it costs the state government to treat a COVID-19 patient, but what he provided was a rough estimate.

The cost he arrived at, factored in treatment, cost of feeding, accommodation and the services provided by the healthcare givers, etc.

Abayomi also revealed that about 2,036 COVID-19 patients have not been picked from the community in the last two weeks, due to preference for home treatment, logistic issues, wrong information provided in their forms and inability to reach such patients because their phones were switched off.
