Video: How Health workers celebrated Easter at Lagos Infectious Disease Hospital

As Christians around the world celebrate Easter today, health workers at the Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, Lagos state, where COVID-19 patients are being treated, also had their share of the celebration.

In a video shared on Twitter by TheCable, the health were seen singing and dancing in worship as gospel artiste, Abolaji Banjoko, popularly known as Beejay Sax made sure they had a nice Easter.

As the celebration went on, the health workers also had the opportunity of celebrating the day with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Using the Instagram live video, the Governor didn’t only mark Easter with the medical workers at the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH) in Yaba, he also celebrated with their colleagues at the Onikan Isolation Centre in Lagos Island.

Sanwo-Olu said the gesture was informed by the need to personally demonstrate his gratitude to the health workers and boost their morale, describing all the frontline health workers engaged by the State Government in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as “heroes”.

Sanwo-Olu said: “Today being Easter, I take a moment to identify with all our health workers; the heroes who deny themselves of personal wellbeing and comfort to attend to emergencies we are grappling with at this period. I left every other thing I am doing and thought it necessary to share this moment with those who endure great pain and discomfort to save all of us from the agony of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.”

In the live video streamed at the isolation facilities, the Governor sent greetings and lifted the spirit of the medical personnel with songs of praise as they attended to medical emergencies.

As the music played on, the health workers and volunteers excitedly trooped out of the isolation wards, dancing towards the gospel band positioned at a safe distance in the facilities.

The health workers joined the Governor and the saxophonist to pray for divine strength to raise the capacity of the State Government in putting the ravaging pandemic under control.

Patients in the isolation facilities were not left out of the excitement.

Some of them in the advanced stage of treatment danced to the tunes in their wards. Others stayed by the windows and waved intermittently to acknowledge the gospel artiste’s musical ministration.
