The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, on Sunday said that the state tested a total of 42,348 samples for COVID-19 as of July 3.⁣

Abayomi, who disclosed this on his Twitter account, said that of the 42,348 samples, 10,926 returned positive.⁣

He said that 748 COVID-19 tests were conducted in the state on July 3, out of which 87 new cases were confirmed.⁣

“Out of the total number of confirmed cases, 1,695 patients have since been discharged from the Lagos COVID-19 care centres following full recovery.⁣

“A total of 6,259 of the cases monitored in communities by COVID-19 Lagos Response Team have either fully recovered or are positively responding to treatments,”
he said.⁣

The commissioner said that 365 of the cases were under isolation in public and private care centres.⁣

Abayomi, however, said that 2,430 active cases in the communities had yet to turn up for admission in care centres either due to fear of stigmatisation or preference for home care treatments.⁣

“As on July 3, the number of COVID-19 related deaths in Lagos State had risen to 177,” he said.⁣

According to the official, the time to take responsibility is now.⁣

He advised the state residents to observe physical distancing and regularly wash their hands.⁣

Abayomi also advised the residents to stay at home when unnecessary to go out, adding that they should wear face masks when going out to reduce the risk of infection.⁣
