The ministry, through its verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, announced the discharge of 19 females and 18 males, including a foreign national – an Indian.

The latest discharge brings the total number of recoveries from the virus in the state to 358.

Five of the patients were released from the Infectious Disease Hospital, 25 from Onikan Isolation centre and seven from Eti-Osa (Landmark) isolation centre.

“What this indicates is that while our numbers of confirmed cases are rising, we are also maintaining a significant discharge rate of our active cases, which shows that our medical interventions and management of the cases are working,” Sanwo-Olu said.

According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Lagos has recorded 1,226 COVID-19 cases, as of Tuesday.
