Covid-19: Lagos health commissioner recovers

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi has recovered from coronavirus.

According to Gbenga Omotoso, the commissioner for information and strategy, Abayomi’s PCR test returned negative on Sunday evening.

The health commissioner announced that he tested positive for the disease last week.

In a statement, Omotoso said Abayomi will return to his full duties gradually.

He said, “It is with gratitude to God that I announce the recovery and subsequent negative test for COVID-19 of the honourable commissioner for health, Akin Abayomi.

“Following the mandatory isolation, the commissioner retook a COVID-19 PCR test which returned negative yesterday evening.

“Abayomi is very grateful and humbled by the deep concern shown and expressed by executive council members, civil servants, Lagos residents, Nigerians, both locally and in the diaspora, through prayers, messages, phone calls and gifts.

“He will be returning to his full duties gradually and remains resolute in delivering the mandate of Mr Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, whom he says stood by him steadfastly in these trying times and is very appreciative of.

“Governor Sanwo-Olu, the incident commander, is excited by the news and urges Lagosians to realise that COVID-19 is still with us; they should keep obeying the guidelines- watching their hands, wearing face masks and avoiding large gatherings, among others.”
