Coronavirus: Nurses protest over lack of medical equipment in Lagos State (Video)

April 2, 2020

A group of Nigerian nurses protested in Enugu state, over the lack of medical equipment, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus is an ongoing global pandemic, which has affected over 900,000 people, and left over 46,000 people dead.

In Nigeria, the recorded cases of coronavirus continue to rise, as the NCDC earlier confirmed 23 new cases, taking the total number of cases in the country to 174.

Some states in the country are on lockdown as the government looks to curb the spread of the virus, though the protesting health workers feel the government is not doing enough

The nurses were seen singing songs asking the state government to provide Personal Protective Equipment including hand sanitisers, face masks and hand gloves to fight the coronavirus.

The nurses said they would no longer work until the government provided the equipment for them, thereby leaving patients in the hospital at their mercy.
