The Lagos State government has said that out of the 14 deaths from COVID-19 the state has recorded, only two died in its facilities, while others died in private hospitals and also on their way to the state facilities.

The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, disclosed this Sunday, April 19, while providing update on efforts by the state government to contain the pandemic.

He said the state government was being proactive because it was better to be over-prepared than to be under-prepared.

Abayomi also said that new isolation centres were being built to add more bed spaces aside the hotel facilities that had been provided by the state government that would be converted to isolation centres.

He implored residents that have symptoms of COVID-19 not to stay at home, as it complicates issues.

The commissioner added that only three of the 20 local councils in Lagos State have not recorded a single case of Coronavirus. He said there were no cases of the virus in Ojo, Epe and Ajeromi-Ifelodun local councils while Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland and Ikeja were the three local councils with the highest cases of COVID-19.
