*Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State in action
The Lagos State has continued to lead the pace in the fight against the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Nigeria with the number of patients discharged from the pandemic. Lagos State government earlier today (Thursday April 9, 2020) said it has discharged seven more patients from the Mainland Hospital infectious disease facility in Yaba.
The hard-fighting governor of Lagos, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu disclosed this good news through his verified Twitter account, which is: @jidesanwoolu. He disclosed through his tweet that, “Good people of Lagos, I bring you awesome news from IDH, Yaba, which is as a testament to our resolve to overcome the lethal #COVID19 pandemic ravaging the world.
“Today, we discharged seven more patients who have fully recovered and tested negative twice consecutively for #COVID19. This brings to 39 the number of discharged patients in Lagos. The patients include one female and six males; three of the discharged male patients are foreign nationals — two Ukrainians and one Italian.”
The governor who has been up and doing with his team said as it stands, Lagos leads the toll of Nigeria’s COVID-19 infections with 145 of the overall 276 cases. But even at such huge number of the cases, Lagos State has altogether discharged 39 patients, while two patients have been evacuated; and the state had recorded three COVID-19-related deaths. The state alongside Ogun State and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja are under 14-days of lockdown as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
