The Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) has warned relatives and well-wishers to limit visiting patients on admission in the hospital as part of measures to halt the spread of COVID-19.
The hospital stressed that for those who must visit, protocols of hand washing, use of hand sanitizer, and the wearing of facemask must be adhered to.
Spokesperson of the hospital, Bridget A. Omini, gave the directive yesterday in Jos following the report of the increase in the number of COVID-19 positive cases in the state.
Daily Trust had reported how the authorities of the hospital had decried the increased number of COVID-19 patients trooping to the hospital in recent time and how the facility was running short of bed spaces.
The hospital, however, urged the general public to cooperate with staff on duty without any obstruction, distraction of hospital equipment, or threat of physical assault, promising to provide quality services despite the current challenges.
