The status of Medical head was made public by UCH via their official Twitter account. They wrote:

On Monday 23rd March, we commenced a 12-man quarterly board meeting which was meant to last 5 days in the hospital, we observed social distancing and other precautionary measures for as much as possible.

However, on Wednesday morning, one of us presented with what appeared to be symptoms of COVID-19, his samples were immediately taken for test and the meeting called off.

His results returned positive on Friday morning and every participant (including me) immediately went into self-isolation while our samples were also taken for the test.

Unfortunately, my result returned positive on Saturday afternoon & I remain in isolation as I am not symptomatic.

All staff have been in contact with me and other participants during this period have been advised to immediately proceed on self-isolation pending the time they get tested.

COVID-19 is spreading faster than we think and I enjoin everyone to take precautions. If one person has it, then a gathering of two becomes dangerous. Stay at home, avoid unnecessary outing and stay safe.
