Currently, Lagos has 145 confirmed Coronavirus cases, with 39 discharged, three death and two evacuated to their countries.

However, Sanwo-Olu, on his twitter handle on Thursday said the seven people discharged tested negative twice for the virus at the Infectious Disease Hospital, IDH, Yaba.
“Good people of Lagos, I bring you awesome news from IDH, Yaba, which is as a testament to our resolve to overcome the lethal COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the world.
“Today, we discharged 7 more patients who have fully recovered and tested negative twice consecutively for COVID-19.
“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,” he said.
The governor said the state looked forward to more great news in the coming days and implored Lagosians to support its offensive against COVID-19 by complying with government’s directives and taking responsibility for themselves and their community.
Sanwo-Olu added that in the coming days, some health workers would 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.
“This is in a bid to intensify our search for possible cases of COVID-19 in different communities across the State known as *Active Case Search*. These officials can be identified with a COVID-19 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 COVID-19 pandemic quickly. Again, I assure you that at the end of it all, we will be victorious,” he said.
