Lagos State has recorded another death to Coronavirus, bringing the total number so far in the state to five.
Commissioner for Health in Lagos, Prof Akin Abayomi, made the announcement via his Twitter handle on Sunday.
He said the death was due to complication from the virus.
“Unfortunately, Lagos recorded another death from #COVID19 related complication, bringing numbers of such sad occurrence to five,” Prof Abayomi said.
The state so far has 177 confirmed cases of Coronavirus while 50 persons, who recovered at its isolation centre, had been discharged.
As at Saturday night, Nigeria had recorded 11 new coronavirus cases, bringing the number of infections in the country to 318.
Recall that Chikwe Ihekweazu, the director-general of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), has disclosed that 90% of COVID-19 patients recover without any intervention.
He said: “We should remember that 90 per cent of these patients recover without any intervention. So, if you take something and say you recovered and that something is why you recovered, it doesn’t quite add up.”
The NCDC boss further explained that very few viruses have a cure. He said COVID-19 patients are given oxygen at the hospital which is not a treatment but administered to keep the patients alive for long enough to recover yourself.
