I am excited to announce some positive news ahead of our lockdown. We have just discharged 5 formerly positve #COVID19 patients from our Infectious Disease Hospital after treatment and multiple testing by our specialists. Congratulations to the healthcare team and the patients.
The preservation of life is very important and this lockdown will help us trace and stop the spread of #COVID19. We have increased capacity at all levels and I want to assure Lagosians that no matter what happens in the days ahead we can beat this. Please #StayHomeSaveLives
