Lagos Discharges 21 Coronavirus Patients

The governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu took to his Twitter handle to announce this, stating that the 21 COVID-19 patients were 4 females and 17 males, all Nigerians.

Taking to social media, he wrote;

Today, 21 COVID-19 patients; 4 females and 17 males, all Nigerians have been discharged from our isolation facilities to reunite with the society.

The patients, 3 from Onikan, 1 from Eti-Osa, 1 from First Cardiology Hospital, 6 from Lekki and 10 from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) isolation centres were discharged today having fully recovered and tested negative to COVID-19 in two consecutive test readings.

With this, the total number of cases successfully managed and discharged from our isolation facilities has risen to 469.

The discharge of COVID-19 patients is encouraging but we must continue to practice hand hygiene, wear a mask and physically distance ourselves when outdoors.

If we continue to do the right things and obey the stipulated public health safety guidelines, together we can break the chain of transmission of COVID-19.
