The Lagos State Government on Thursday recorded two more COVID-19-related deaths and discharged another five other patients who have tested negative twice.
The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, disclosed this via his Twitter handle, @ProfAkinAbayomi.
It can be recalled that a 51-year-old Dr Chigbo Emeka died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, after he had contact with an infected person in his private hospital.
“Unfortunately, Lagos recorded three additional deaths from COVID-19-related complications. The deceased are males aged 51, 52 and 62. One of the dead, a medical doctor, had contact with an infected person who recently returned to the country.
“Other victims have no travel history or record of contact with any infected person. Total COVID-19-related deaths are now 10.
“I hereby urge Lagosians to remain vigilant and report any concern about #COVID-19 infection in our communities by calling 08000CORONA #ForAGreaterLagos,” Abayomi said.
