Ogun State Government has teamed up with the Flying Doctors team led by Dr. Ola Brown to unveil the first protective glass, a walk-in and drive-through testing centre at Ota.

The protective glass box recently unveiled by the Ogun State Government is now in use by health workers in the State to collect samples for forwarding tests at the Ogun State Walk-in & Drive-through Testing Centre at the Ijamido Town Hall, Opposite Ansar-u-Deen Comprehensive College in Ota.

Protective Glass By Ogun State Government

According to an analysis earlier given by the State Ministry of Health, the protective glass box, which is the first in Nigeria, has the advantage of being reliable against infection unlike disposable personal protective equipment (PPEs) with boots, which at the point of removal may put the geared worker at risk.

This walk-in centre is in partnership with the Flying Doctors Investment Group led by Dr. Ola Brown. Ota was chosen strategically because it is one of the towns which border Lagos State, the disease hot-spot in Nigeria.

This centre is a game-changer in the detection of the disease in our communities. The tests are available to high-risk patients who are detected during contract tracing or those who are symptomatic. After an initial assessment at the Test Centre, patients who meet the criteria for testing have their samples taken and sent to the newly installed molecular lab in OOUTH or other accredited labs in neighbouring states. The results will be communicated directly and confidentially to the patients.

Incidentally, Ota recorded its first confirmed cases of COVID-19 overnight and the contacts of these positive cases will have easy access to testing.

To ensure its reliability against the risk of infection for collection officers, the built-in hand gloves are disinfected by standby trained hygienists after each sample is collected.

The testing centre has welcomed a number of suspected patients, most of whom presented themselves on reasonable grounds.

Their samples are immediately transferred for testing, with results getting ready within a shorter time than it used to take before this laudable innovation.
