Lagos State government has discharged seven coronavirus patients from the Infectious Disease Hospital IDH in Yaba area of the state, after testing negative twice for the disease.

The Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu made the disclosure on Thursday via his verified Twitter handle.

Sanwo-Olu said the patients include one female and six males; three of the discharged male patients are foreign nationals — two Ukrainians and one Italian.

This brings the total number of COVID-19 discharged patients in the state to 39.

Sanwo-Olu tweeted: “Good people of Lagos, I bring you awesome news from IDH, Yaba, which is as a testament to our resolve to overcome the lethal #COVID19 pandemic ravaging the world.

“Today, we discharged seven more patients who have fully recovered and tested negative twice consecutively for #COVID19.

“This brings to 39 the number of discharged patients in Lagos.

“The patients include one female and six males; three of the discharged male patients are foreign nationals — two Ukrainians and one Italian.”

Sanwo-Olu also appealed to Lagosians to support the state’s ‘offensive against #COVIDー19 by complying with our directives and taking responsibility for yourselves and your community.’

He further revealed that some health workers will, in the coming days, be moving around in pairs to administer an electronic questionnaire at homes and healthcare facilities to make enquiries about some symptoms like cough, cold and fever.

He said: “This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of #COVID19 in different communities across the State known as *Active Case Search*. These officials can be identified with a #COVID19 outbreak response tag or a letter from the LGA.”

“I implore you to give them your maximum support by providing accurate information that would help in containing this #COVID19 pandemic quickly. Again, I assure you that at the end of it all, we will be victorious. Thank you. He concluded.

So far, Lagos has discharged 39 patients, while two patients have been evacuated; and the state had recorded three COVID-19-related deaths.
