Lagos State government in Nigeria has unveiled an impressive isolation and treatment centre for the coronavirus.

The centre built at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena (formerly Onikan Stadium) is being supported by Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB).

The centre with hundreds of beds and ventilators should be useful if the spread of the virus gets worst in Nigeria.

The country has so far recorded at least 89 cases with concerns the spread could surge in the coming days.

Videos of the centre have gone viral with many applauding the Lagos state for the standby treatment centre for the pandemic.
