This is to inform the members of the University of Lagos Community and its environs that the Medical Center will be attending to emergencies only at this time. This has become necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic which has begun to record person-to-person spread in our country. Recent events have shown that hospitals are fast becoming a focus of spread especially in our environment.
In view of this development, members of the community are advised to please stay at home. If they feel unwell (If you are really ill, with fever, dry and continuous cough and difficulty in breathing), they should please call the Lagos State NCDC hotlines: 08023169485, 08033565529, 08052817243, 08028971864, 08059758886, 08035387653. For other emergencies, please call the UNILAG Medical Centre on the number listed below: 08093933356, 09098573661, 08033203609, 08063734631.
A visit to the hospital should occur only when these measures fail or when there is a real health emergency.
Provision has been made for members of the community who will need to refill their routine drugs. This category of patients is requested to forward their names, file number and request date to 08082474656 when drug refill is needed. Drugs will be packaged, and can be picked up at the Medical Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m. and 12 noon.
Avoiding hospitals in addition to other measures such as regular hand washing, social distancing and good cough etiquette will help reduce the risk of getting infected. Let us as much as possible stay home and stay safe at this time
