Five More COVID-19 Patients Including a 10-year-old Girl Discharged in Lagos

The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced the discharge of five more Coronavirus patients from the Infectious Disease Hospital in Lagos. In a post shared on his IG page this evening, the governor said a 10-year-old girl is amongst the five patients discharged today.

”My dear Lagosians, greetings.
Yesterday, I announced the discharge of one more patient at our Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba.

Today, I am happy to inform you that five more patients comprising two Males and three Females including a 10 year old girl have tested negative twice consecutively to COVID-19 and have been discharged to reunite with their families. This brings to 29 the total number of patients who have fully recovered and discharged from our facility at Yaba.” he wrote

He expressed sadness at the news of the 36-year-old man who died of Coronavirus in a private facility in the state on Saturday April 4th.

The governor appealed to Lagosians not to stigmatise those that have been discharged from the hospital.

”It is however sad that the State has recorded another death, bringing to two the total number of deaths from COVID-19 in Lagos State. I need to reiterate that the result of tests conducted by our health workers on the recovered patients is a confirmation that they pose no threat to the community. I will like to use this opportunity to advise Lagosians against stigmatising the discharged patients as this act could bring feelings of shame, hopelessness and despair. We need to do all we can to support them in whatever form to get over the memories as soon as possible.

I wish to thank our frontline health workers who are taking good care of the patients, members of the Lagos State Health family and the Emergency Operation Centre for their kindness and flexibility in managing the patients and checking the spread of the disease” the statement read

He appealed to residents of the state to continue practicing social distancing and taking all precautionary measures as the state continues its battle against the ravaging viral disease.

”In order to contain the spread of the disease, I strongly advise you to continue observing Social Distancing, and all the instructions on prevention and transmission.
Let us remain indoors and shun the temptation to breach the presidential restriction that has been placed on our state so that the gains recorded so far are not eroded.
It has come to our notice that some of our youths still engage in sporting, socializing, and other related activities, this is very unfortunate. This act could jeopardise our efforts and the laudable intention of the lockdown. I therefore advise you to adhere strictly to our instructions so that together we can win the battle.” the statement read
