Despite the millions donated by corporate bodies and individuals to help in combating the ongoing pandemic which has seen Lagos state topping the list in the number of persons infected with the novel Coronavirus, the staff of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) especially nurses who are giving in their best by working 24hrs to save lives have raised an alarm over the quality of food regularly served to them by the hospital management.
It was revealed that nurses on duty after working round the clock to battle the ongoing pandemic were served with Garri and Beans while their counterparts, the doctors, were served with Spaghetti and Chicken.
SecretReporters learned that the nurses on duty, however, rejected the food as it lacked the necessary vitalities to keep their body strong for a whole day.
It is also alleged that no Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was provided for most of the nurses to professionally do their work despite billions of Naira donated for the cause.
It is however disheartening that essential workers on the forefront of combating the pandemic are subjected to such working conditions as Nigerians call on the Federal government and the Lagos State government to quickly address the issue to avoid an escalation which may worsen the current health situation in the state with one of the highest population in the country.
