The Catholic Bishop Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has offered all its 425 health facilities across the country as isolation centres for coronavirus.
Secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, disclosed this at the presidential task force briefing on Monday.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) had said no state in the country has enough bed spaces for coronavirus patients.
But with the recent donations, Mustapha who chairs the presidential task force on COVID-19, said state governments can now take advantage of the facilities.
“As part of efforts to support the states in the establishment of the isolation and treatment centres, I wish to remind our governors that the Catholic Bishops Conference has volunteered all the 425 hospitals and clinics nationwide for adaptation and use as isolation centres,” he said.
“Governors are encouraged to please approach Catholic Bishops in their states to access these facilities.
