The Acting Director of Clinical Services and Training, Dr. Adebowale Adekoya appreciated the effort of the NCDC and work they have been doing in times past. He assured that the hospital is ready to take on the responsibility of being the Influenza Surveillance Centre in the South-West of Nigeria for COVID-19.

Sight coordinator for Influenza Surveillance in LASUTH, Dr. Sodipo along-side the Site Facilitator, Mr. Albert both noted that the data collation on samples which are eventually used for development and distribution of vaccines and medication hence the need for LASUTH to be constantly in tune with world-wide practices.
