The Deputy Majority Leader of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Noheem Adams, has said the rising number of discharged COVID-19 patients is an indication that the state government is proactive in the fight against the pandemic.
Adams pointed out that Italy, Spain and the United States, among other countries, were still recording high mortalities as a result of COVID-19, compared with the low rates in Lagos.
The lawmaker stated this in Lagos during the distribution of 5,000 packs of relief packages to his Eti-Osi 1 constituents.
Adams said, “Going by the rising number of those that have been discharged after treatment and declared free of the virus in Lagos, this shows that the state government is efficient and effective in treating this COVID-19 disease.
“Italy, Spain, the United State of America are still counting their dead as a result of COVID-19 in thousands but its deadly effect is minimal here. I want to commend Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, for being on top of the situation.”
The lawmaker distributed the palliatives through community development associations and traditional rulers.
