The Medical Laboratory Science Council Advisory on COVID-19

The Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria in line with its regulatory functions and mandate has viewed the emergence of the pathogen identified as Corona Virus (Covid-19) and other related pathogens with concern based on both the mode of transmission, the pathogenicity, the social and economic impact of the disease and hereby states as follows:

Due to the higher likelihood of the infection spread in crowded gathering, MLSCN is hereby suspending ALL Official activities (Inductions, Accreditations, Inspections, Meetings etc.) for a period of Six (6) Weeks with effect from 23rd March, 2020.

Individuals are advised to avoid handshakes, hugs, kisses, close contacts with other people. Use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers should be adhered to.

All Laboratory practitioners must wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the course of duty.

All good laboratory work practices and code of conduct should be practiced always.




The Governing Board of the Medical Laboratory Science council of Nigeria, as part of its efforts to join in the fight to curtail the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) hereby temporarily suspends for a period of six (6) weeks in the first instance, the enforcement of the 200% penalty on late payment of Annual Practice licence with effect from April 1st, 2020.
