425 hospitals donated to Nigeria as COVID-19 isolation centres by Catholic church

425 health facilities donated to the country as isolation centres for COVID-19 by the Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria (CBCN)

Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), who disclosed this at the presidential task force briefing on Monday said state governments can now take advantage of the facilities. 

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) had said no state in the country has enough bed spaces for COVID-19 patients.

But Mustapha said the recent donations would add as support for the state governments. he said;

As part of efforts to support the states in the establishment of the isolation and treatment centres, I wish to remind our governors that the Catholic Bishops Conference has volunteered all the 425 hospitals and clinics nationwide for adaptation and use as isolation centres, Governors are encouraged to please approach Catholic Bishops in their states to access these facilities.

​As a further cost-effective measure, I also wish to remind subnational authorities that the Nigeria Institute of Architects has pledged the pro bono services of their members to modify, design and supervise all COVID-19 related projects nationwide. Again, we urge that this offer be taken up speedily.
