Taking to his official social media handle to give Lagosians update on the current situation on ground, Governor Sanwo-Olu in a statement said:
Yes, we are always happy to share the news of recovered patients with you. However, we would prefer that we do not have patients at the isolation centres. We would love for everyone to be at home with their loved ones in good health.
This can only be possible if we follow all the guidelines on public health safety.
And on this note, I have good news for you. 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.
Thank You,” he added.
