After several weeks in Lagos isolation centers, 37 coronavirus positive cases were on Wednesday approved by the State Government to reunite with their families.
Of the 37 patients discharge, one was an Indian national while the rest were Nigerians that were treated at different isolation centers in the state.
Announcing their discharge, the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in a statement made available by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile on Wednesday, disclosed that 19 of the new discharged patients were females and 18 males.
Sanwo-Olu added that the patients were managed at three different isolation centers, Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) in Yaba, Lagos-Island center in Onikan and Eti-Osa Isolation center in Eti-Osa Local Government.
The governor added: “With this, the total number of cases successfully managed and discharged from our isolation facilities has risen to 358”.
“What this indicates is that while our numbers of confirmed cases are rising, we are also maintaining a significant discharge rate of our active cases, which shows that our medical interventions and management of the cases are working.
“While we are encouraged by this, I will like to remind residents that the Ease Of Lockdwown is not Ease Of Physical Distancing in the state.
“Remember to practice hand hygiene, join our #MaskUpLagos campaign by using a facemask especially when outdoor and don’t forget to observe strictly the physical distancing principle”.
