The health workers who said they are “totally withdrawing services across board”, listed some conditions that must be met before returning back to work and they include; adequate security of lives and properties, validation of COVID-19 status of some staff of the hospital that have been in isolation, provision of COVID-19 testing facilities (PCR machines) and maximum of 20 patients being attended to daily.
