UPDATES: #COVID19: Lagos Discharges Five Corona Virus Patients
The Lagos State Government has on Monday discharged five coronavirus patients who were admitted to and treated at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba Mainland Hospital.
This news was disseminated in an update released by the Lagos State Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile on Monday.
According to the statement, the survivors are four men and one woman, bringing the total number of survivors from the centre to be eight.
The info revealed that “the survivors were quarantined and treated at the isolation centre for two solid weeks after a revealed report shows positive for the coronavirus.
“The survivors who preferred to remain anonymous looked stable and unruffled, saying they felt very great that they have been given a clean clearance of health.
“They showed joyous and satisfactory with the State Government of lagos and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the treatments they had been administered at the isolation centre and for his proactive approach towards the containment of the virus,” the statement added.
One of the discharged patients ( names withheld) said, “I came in here on the 15th and after the test showed positive, I was asked to come back the next day. I was admitted here same day.
“Initially, there were hitches but it later turned out fine. The health workers did fine, all our challenges were attended to. I’m a living witness together with my other colleagues.”
The discharged patient  assured the public that testing positive for COVID-19 is not a death sentence, advised people not to panic as the virus could be conquered
“We can beat it, I want to assure others that this is not their resting place. Encourage yourselves, take your medications and in no distant time, you will get out of here.
“I want to appeal to the Federal Government and Lagos State government that, they should remunerate all those workers who have volunteered to work accordingly, so as to serve as encouragement to others, adding that, “If they are not here as first responders, many patients would have died.”
Another survivor said, “I was admitted last Sunday. Initially there were challenges, the following day, they brought bed, mask and some equipment.
“Apart from what my colleague said, the workers should be insured. Proper insurance will let people do what they have to do.
He narrated a scenario where the workers could not attend to him because he tested positive, saying “they went back and I slept off, I woke up around 3a.m. So they deserve life insurance to encourage them to do their job.”
Meanwhile Governor Sanwo-Olu has received the news of the full recovery of the five patients with excitement.
The Governor, in a short message reassured Lagosians that the Government is doing all within her powers to curtail the spread of the virus so that life could return to normal.
He said: “we are very excited to hear that five of our citizens in the isolation centre have regained full recovery. It is another pointer to us that with a concerted effort, we can defeat the coronavirus in Lagos and Nigeria.”
