Prof Abayomi while reacting to the man’s claims during a press briefing on Tuesday, said the mode of operation at the isolation centre is different from that of a hospital ward.
He said, “It takes a few days for the patients to get accustomed to isolation centres and that is why it is called isolation.”
“For about one or two days, patients will always complain on social media that nobody is doing this, I haven’t seen anybody. That is not correct. They are just not accustomed to seeing people for few minutes a few times a day. It is totally different from a normal ward.
“After about two days, the patients become accustomed to that and then they settle down. They start interacting with other patients in the ward, they make friends and if you have listened to the testimonies that have been released, they thank the government.
“They make a lot of good comments, they are happy that they are well and they have finally understood what isolation means.”
