COVID-19: Ogun Discharges 6 Patients, Monitoring 73 Active Cases


From Heritage Odih, Abeokuta

Ogun State  has discharged 6 Coronavirus patients from its Isolation Centre in Ikenne, after each of them had tested negative to the virus on two consecutive times.

The 6 patients have since joined their families to continue living their normal lives. 

This brings the total number of discharged patients in Ogun to 20, Kunle Somorin, the Chief Secretary to Governor Dapo Abiodun, said in a statement.

However, 4 new confirmed cases were announced in the State by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control(NCDC) on Wednesday, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the State to 95.

Of these 95, there are currently 73 active cases who are receiving specialised care in Isolation Centres within the State.

The State Ministry of Health expresses the hope that in coming days, more patients would be discharged, and urged the public to continue to maintain social distancing as the use of facemasks alone may not independently avoid the risk of infection.
