Nigerian Doctors on Strike

Patients who don't have COVID-19 are being turned away from public hospitals in Nigeria after doctors acted on their threat to strike indefinitely over inadequate COVID-19 protections and salary disputes, Vanguard reports.
 
The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors said that staff are still treating COVID-19 patients—but that may change if demands are not met within 2 weeks,  Al Jazeera reports.
 
800+ Nigerian health workers have tested positive for COVID-19.
 
As cases continue to rise and isolation units fill, medical experts are concerned that some people continue to flout protective measures, Daily Trust reported.
 
Physician Ejike Orji, a member of the federal COVID-19 advisory committee, says a spike in cases “is already happening,” he said. “Abuja has been recording an average of 42 cases per day in the last two weeks.”
