The Lagos State Government has announced that seven more patients have regained their freedom after testing negative to the Coronavirus.

They have been held at an intensive care facility in Yaba.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu whose administration has been fighting to reduce the spread of the virus took to his Twitter handle to disclose news of this development.

“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’, the governor remarked.

” Today, we discharged 7 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 revealed.

He said that although the State is looking forward to the recovery of more persons in the coming days,  “I implore you all to support our offensive against #COVIDー19 by complying with our directives and taking responsibility for yourselves and your community.
“In the coming days, some of our health workers will 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 explained that Lagos would embark on what experts describe as Active Case Search in order to nip incidents of the virus in the bud.
” This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of #COVID19 in different communities across the State”, the governor pointed out.
“These officials”, he stated “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”, Sanwo-Olu added.
A correspondent of the Port Harcourt Telegraph says that signs that Nigeria might be winning the war against the virus are beginning to emerge.
The number of recovery cases are increasing by the day as Nigerian doctors, nurses and other paramedics on the Frontline fight to salvage their country.
China has sent help, despite discordant notes that are arising, saying that the gesture was a reciprocation of the help it received from Nigeria at its time of need.
