Regardless of the expanding number of patients, the Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, said at a press instructions yesterday that the state was not overwhelmed by the outbreak as only 70 percent of the capacity of existing isolation centers was in use.
He however said the state would decentralize care in the communities in the next two to three weeks to allow only severe cases at the isolation centres, while asymptomatic and mild cases would be managed at home and moderate cases would be referred to the community care centre.
