The Catholic Church hands 425 hospitals over to Nigeria as isolation centres


The Nigerian Catholic Bishop Conference (CBCN) has provided all of its 425 health facilities around the country as COVID-19 isolation centres.

Secretary of the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, announced that the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) offered all of its 425 health facilities distributed across the country as isolation centers for the treatment of the novel coronavirus (COVID 19).

Nigeria wants all the bed spaces it can get as it tries to contain the outbreak of COVID-19. According to Mustapha, donation to the Catholic Church will be handy

“As part of efforts to support states in setting up isolation and treatment centers, I would like to remind our governors that the Catholic Bishops Conference has volunteered all 425 hospitals and clinics across the country for adaptation and use as isolation centers,” said Mustapha.

“Governors are required to contact the Catholic Bishops in their respective states to access these services.

“As a further cost-effective measure, I would also like to remind sub-national authorities that the Nigeria Institute of Architects has promised to modify, design and supervise all COVID-19 related projects nationwide through the pro bono services of its members. Again, we urge that this offer be taken up quickly.

“Later Rain Assembly Pastor Tunde Bakare also announced that his church would donate its worship facilities as isolation centres.
