A two-year-old girl has tested positive for COVID-19 at the Federal Medical Centre in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Head, Public Relations and Information of the hospital, Segun Orisajo, disclosed this in a statement, noting that the child was admitted into the hospital eight days ago on account of having difficulty in breathing.

He said investigations and medical examination tests carried out on the toddler, revealed she was COVID-19 positive.

He, however, said no health care worker was unduly exposed to the child, adding that the management has also initiated contact tracing of her family members.

“Due to her persisted high temperature, she was isolated, hence no member of staff or other patients were unduly exposed.

“To confirm the initial suspicion by a team of caregivers, on the third day, she was screened for COVID-19 while her treatment continued.

“The samples of her test returned positive for COVID-19 a few moments ago.

“The girl is already receiving treatment at the centre’s isolation ward while the facility where she was initially admitted has been decontaminated,” Orisajo said.
