Commissioner for Health in Lagos State, Akin Abayomi, on Sunday evening said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is responding well to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) treatment.
Abayomi disclosed this on his twitter handle.
He said the governor is receiving home-based care and treatment for the virus.
Recall that Sanwo-Olu tested positive for the virus on Friday.
He had earlier proceeded on self-isolation after one of his close aides contracted the COVID-19.
The health commissioner wrote: “Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is responding well to COVID-19 home-based care and treatment. He is in high spirit and very appreciative of all your prayers and well wishes.
“I will be keeping the public informed regularly of Mr. Governor’s recovery and wellbeing.”
The state is the epicenter of the virus in Nigeria with about 24,000 confirmed cases and over 200 deaths.
Nigeria currently has 72,757 confirmed cases and 1,194 deaths from the pandemic.
