Yewande Oyetade, medical laboratory technician collecting samples for COVID-19 testing at the Agege Primary Health Centre.

''What gave me the drive to continue with this work is that I want COVID-19 to be eradicated. Without collecting samples, you cannot detect who is suffering from the virus. And without a laboratory service, there is no way you can diagnose a patient. My people are afraid but I always assure them that I am protected because Lagos State has provided us with the PPE that we need. That is what I tell them to give them assurance that I will not be infected.''
