Five more Coronavirus patients have recovered from the virus in Lagos State.
The State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, revealed this in a series of tweets via his verified handle on Sunday, April 5, 2020.
He explained that the recovered patients comprise a 10-year-old girl, two males and two females respectively.
This comes barely 24 hours after one person was discharged from the Government’s Infectious Disease Hospital in the Yaba area of the State.
He added that they were thereafter released from the facility to reunite with their families.
In the tweets, Governor Sanwo-Olu confirmed that the new set of patients discharged on Sunday tested negative twice to the virus.
According to the Governor, this brings the total number of patients who have fully recovered and have been discharged from the facility at Yaba to 29.
He stressed that despite the indications that the State appeared to be winning the battle against Coronavirus, it was imperative that the Government and residents remain steadfast to curtail the spread of the disease.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, therefore, appealed to the people of the State to continue to observe social distancing, as well as stay in their houses as part of efforts to tackle the outbreak.
The Governor also thanked the frontline health workers, as well as members of the Lagos State Health Family and the Emergency Operation Centre for all their effort.
