On Monday, 30th March 2020, Nigeria discharged five coronavirus patients at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba Mainland Hospital, Lagos under the supervision of Lagos State Government and Lagos state Ministry of health.
This brings to eight the total number of discharged patients from the Centre.
The patients are said to have fully recovered from the virus and tested negative after being quarantined for weeks.
While thanking the State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his support and proactiveness, the anonymous discharged patients pleaded that the workers at the Centre should be given life insurance.
While speaking to the press, 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.”
“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.
