As International flights resume in Nigeria, Reddington Zaine Laboratory has announced plans to offer free treatment for air travelers who will be having their PCR testing upon arrival in Lagos, the nation’s commercial hub.
The promotional treatment package which is only applicable in the event of a positive COVID-19 test includes; free doctor’s consultation, free chest CT scan, free home isolation treatment and fifty per-cent discount on hospital treatment. All treatments will be provided by the medical team at the newly accredited Armoured Shield Medical Centre located at Victoria Island, Lagos.
To qualify for this offering, travelers must choose and register ‘Reddington Zaine Laboratory’ as their preferred Laboratory for the PCR COVID-19 test on the NCDC travel portal and arrival documents. Furthermore, PCR tests must be carried out at the Reddington Zaine Lab on the 7th day of arrival in Nigeria.
Commenting on the free treatment package, Dr Sola Oluwole, the Medical Director of Reddington Zaine Laboratory and Armoured Shield Medical Centre said: “We expect most results to be negative but in the event of a positive COVID-19 test, Air Travelers can have their free treatment in our private facility rather than the Government facilities. Our major goal is to ensure Nigeria becomes a COVID free country and that is why we have put together this promotional package to aid air travelers, returning to Nigeria. Our commitment to NCDC remains intact, and we will continue to do all we can to curb the spread.”
The Zaine Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art bio-security safety technology systems which delivers results within 24-hours. At present, Reddington is the only private hospital accredited by the Lagos State Government both for testing and treatment of COVID-19.
According to Dr Sola Oluwole, the Medical Director of Armoured Shield Medical Complex: "Reddington Zaine Laboratory also offers PCR Test for COVID screening of family members, domestic staff, company staff, field workers, School pupils and staff."
The Zaine Lab’s sample collection sites for COVID-19 PCR testing are 6b Bendel Close, Victoria Island and 26 Joel Ogunnaike Street, GRA, Ikeja while the Lekki site is by booked appointment. VIP home collection service is also offered.
