In a bid to fight the deadly coronavirus, the Lagos state Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi has given an update on the treatment of the Italian patient diagnosed with Coronavirus in the state.
While briefing the press on Saturday afternoon, the Commissioner stresses that the Italian patient has been moved to the state’s completed ward which was recently renovated with full complement of facilities.
However, this appears hours after it was reported that the man allegedly threatened to escape from the ward over the poor living conditions.
I have spoken to him myself, he is doing very well, he is comfortable; he was comfortable yesterday and he is comfortable today. He was initially kept in a single isolation room for his privacy when he was brought in because part of the facilities at the Mainland Hospital were being renovated, he has been moved to one of the newly renovated wards” he said
The commissioner added that the Italian patient is recovering.
