Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, revealed that another COVID-19 patient has been discharged from the Infectious Disease Hospital in Lagos.
During a press briefing this evening, Gov. Sanwo-olu revealed that so far, 25 COVID-19 patients have been discharged from the Infectious disease hospital with a total of 108 COVID-19 patients in the state Isolation centre.
The state recorded its first death from complications of coronavirus after a 55-year-old patient who returned from Holland two weeks ago hid his travel history and health condition from doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) where he had sought treatment.
Chris Bode, chief medical director of the hospital, said investigation revealed that the deceased had tested positive for the disease at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba, Lagos, but tried to conceal the information from LUTH doctors.
He was said to have confessed shortly before his death on Friday.
So far, 98 persons have tested positive for COVID-19 in the state and 24 have been discharged.
