Lagos to MANAGE mild coronavirus cases at home

The Lagos State Government has said mild coronavirus cases will be managed at home, adding that only critical cases will go to isolation centres.

The state Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, stated this on Wednesday during a discussion on Instagram on the effects of COVID-19 on the health care system.

Abayomi, who tweeted highlights of the conversation, #ShopTalkHealth, urged members of the public to confirm their coronavirus status if they felt ill.

He explained that government was making efforts to flatten the curve.


“We have exceeded the containment phase now. We are at the active community transmission stage. We will be concentrating on people with severe cases and isolating them, while mild cases will be managed at home. Our attention is shifting to community based isolation,” the commissioner tweeted.
