COVID-19: MEDICAL PERSONNEL WILL GET HAZARD ALLOWANCE AND LIFE INSURANCE NEXT WEEK - MINISTER OF HEALTH

Medical personnel on the frontline of the Coronavirus pandemic will receive their hazard allowances and life insurance coverage next week, according to the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire.


The Health Minister made this disclosure whilst speaking during a live program on Channels Television in commemoration of Nigeria's Democracy Day on June 12th.


Ehanire said efforts were being implemented to ensure that health workers are protected.


The Minister also noted that the Federal Government was aware of the need to make personal protective equipment (PPE) readily available for medical professionals treating COVID-19.


"I spoke with the Minister of Finance just yesterday (Thursday) and she has assured me that the processes are on track, and by next week, they would have finished all the formalities.


“That is the way it goes when you are dealing with finances. But the important thing is to know the start date is already guaranteed. So, whether you get it today or next week, the date it is going to start has already been agreed upon and the payment is assured. So, health workers need not worry and need not have any concerns that they will not be paid," Ehanire said.
