The Lagos State government has discharged 5 patients that were initially testing positive to Coronavirus but have been duly treated and have now fully recovered.
The 5 coronavirus patients were discharged today Monday at Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba Mainland Hospital.
This brings the total number of discharged patients from the centre to eight.
The patients, who had been quarantined at the isolation centre for weeks, looked stable and unruffled.
Although the discharged patients preferred anonymity, they expressed joy and satisfaction over the treatment they received.
While thanking the State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his support and proactiveness, they pleaded that the workers at the Centre should be given life insurance.
While speaking to reporters, one of the patients said: “I came in here on the 15th and after the test showed positive, I was asked to come back the next day. So I was admitted here.
“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.”
He gave an impressive hope, saying people should not panic as the virus could be defeated.
“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 would have died.”
