Twenty-one recovered COVID 19 patients have been discharged by the Lagos State Government on Sunday.
According to a tweet on the verified handle of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, patients recovered in Nigeria, including four men and 17 women.
“Dear Lagosians,” the governor tweeted, “I bring good news.
Today, 21 patients #COVID19; 4 females and 17 males, all Nigerians have been repatriated from our isolation facilities to reunite with the community. “
Sanwo-Olu Governor further said that with the recent developments, the country has now successfully managed and disposed of 469 COVID-19 patients.
He said, however, that while the discharge of patients is part of the cheering news, Lagosians “should continue to practice hand hygiene, wearing masks and physically distancing ourselves when outdoors.
“If we continue to do the right thing and comply with the safety guidelines set public health, together we can break the chain of transmission # COVID19.”
