Lagos State to manage mild COVID-19 cases at home

The Lagos State Government says managing mild coronavirus cases at home will be the new phase as the state will now concentrate on severe cases only.

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.

 “This brings to 649 the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases that have been successfully managed and discharged in Lagos,” he added.
