The Chief Medical Director of the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH), Lafia, capital of Nasarawa State, Dr Ikrama Hassan, has called on the public to take the second wave of COVID-19 more seriously as it is proving to be more virulent than the first wave.

Dr Ikrama who gave the advice in Lafia on Monday, urged residents of the state to take personal responsibility for their health by observing the universal preventive protocols, adding that Nasarawa had already recorded a high number of COVID-19 cases following the second wave.

The CMD emphasised that the state government had fully equipped the hospital with all the necessary equipment for COVID-19 management, including ventilators, adding that the management of DASH had also retrained its staff and that all necessary measures had been put in place to tackle the second wave.

He, however, lamented on the nonchalant attitude of the people towards the virus, saying, “It is very necessary at this time that individuals take personal responsibility of protecting themselves and others.”
