2,683 active COVID-19 cases are yet to turn up for admission in care centres – Lagos Govt

2,683 active cases in the communities are yet to turn up for admission in care centres either due to ignorance/fear of stigmatisation or preference for home care.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi, has said that 2683 persons who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the state, are yet to turn up for admission in the different care centres either due to ignorance/fear of stigmatization or because they have chosen the home care method.

Abayomi stated this while giving an update on the COVID-19 cases in Lagos state – which has remained the epicentre of the pandemic in Nigeria since the first case was recorded in February this year.

In his breakdown, Abayomi said the state has so far witnessed 128 deaths from COVID-19. His tweets read

”#COVID19Lagos Update as at 27th of June, 2020.

4,891 COVID-19 cases were confirmed in Lagos State between June 2 and June 27, 2020 bringing total of confirmed cases in the State to 10,042.

5, 226 of the cases monitored in communities by #COVID19Lagos response team have either fully recovered or responded positively to treatments at home.

454 of the cases are currently under isolation in public and private care centres across Lagos.

However, 2,683 active cases in the communities are yet to turn up for admission in care centres either due to ignorance / fear of stigmatisation or preference for home care.
