Coronavirus Patients Can Demand Doctors Wear Gloves – NCDC Says


The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says COVID-19 patients have the right to demand that health workers including doctors, wear gloves before examining them.

The agency also said that the patients had the right to demand that doctors should wash their hands before attending to them.

The Director-General of NCDC, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, made this known at the daily media briefing by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, on Tuesday in Abuja.

“A patient has a right to demand that a doctor should wear gloves when attending to him or her.

“If you see your nurse or doctor going from one patient to the other without washing hands in between, you should ask, as a patient:

‘Aren’t you supposed to wash your hands before attending to me, you just touched a patient?’ Ihekweazu said.

According to him, this is part of new changes that must be embraced in the health sector because of the threat of COVID-19.
