Lagos Discharges 21 COVID-19 Patients From Isolation Centres

The Lagos State government on Sunday 10th May 2020, confirmed that they have discharged 21 COVID-19 patients from isolation centres across the state, as the state continues to fight to slow down the spread of the coronavirus in the state.

Governor Sanwo-Olu who confirmed that 21 COVID-19 patients have been discharged from isolation centres across the state, said of the 21 COVID-19 patients, 4 were females and 17 were males, as they were discharged as follows; 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.

Taking to his official social media handle to give Lagosians update on the current situation on ground, Governor Sanwo-Olu in a statement said:

“Dear Lagosians,

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.
