As Nigeria continues to battle the spread of the COVID-19 disease, the Lagos State Commissioner for health, Akin Abayomi, has given a breakdown of the situation in the state.
At a briefing on Tuesday, he announced that most of the cases in the state are not severe as they are not in need of ventilators.
“Most of our patients are experiencing a very mild to moderate degree of illness.
“Infact, we don’t have anybody that is requiring ventilation at the moment which is a symptom of what you would describe as severe disease,” the commissioner stated.
His comments come hours after the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), announced an additional four cases of the Coronavirus, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 135.
