…As Three Suspects Test Negative

A family of four children and their teacher, who recently returned from the United States of America and suspected for COVID-19 have been isolated at the Biosecurity Facility of the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, the Lagos State Government has said.

Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi who disclosed this on Wednesday at a news conference to give updates on COVID19 in Lagos, stated that the four children and their teacher were in close proximity to someone who had coronavirus infection.

He explained further that the first test carried out on them was negative, adding that confirmation tests will still be repeated to determine the next point of action.

Abayomi also announced that a man who recently returned from the UK and suspected for COVID19 is in Isolation at the Mainland Hospital, noting that his samples have been collected and test being conducted to determine his status.

The Commissioner revealed that the three suspected persons from France, England, and China who had earlier been in isolation at the Mainland Hospital tested negative and have been discharged.

He explained that the index case is responding well to treatment, adding that his viral load is going down significantly with no symptoms exhibited. He, however, stated that he cannot be released into the community now until the virus is undetectable and cannot infect others.

“The index case is gradually recovering but we need to carry out more tests on him just to be sure of his status and if the virus is undetectable, we will repeat the test a few more times and discharge him afterward”, he said.

In the second confirmed case, Abayomi noted that he is doing well with no major symptoms but only exhibits minor aches and pains noting that more tests will be conducted on him based on the prevailing circumstances.

“We have given him drugs to slow down the virus and we hope his immune system will resist the virus and we will continue to keep him until he is no longer contagious”, he said.

Answering the question on the people that earlier left Lagos for other States in the country, the Commissioner stated that the information has been passed on to the National Center for Diseases Control (NCDC) so that they will be tracked in the States they have gone to with the assistance of the Epidemiologists from the states.
