COVID-19: Ogun Discharges 6 Patients, Records 4 Fresh Cases
Ogun State government on Wednesday has discharged six coronavirus patients from its Isolation Centre in Ikenne, after they each twice tested negative to the virus.
This was stated in a release signed by the chief Press Secretary to governor, Kunle Somorin which was made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The 6 patients, who have since joined their families to continue living their normal lives, bring the total number of discharged cases in Ogun to 20.
However, 4 new confirmed cases were announced in the State by the NCDC yesterday, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the State to 95.
Of these 95, there are currently 73 active cases who are receiving specialised care in Isolation Centres within the State.
The State Ministry of Health expresses hope that as the days go by, more patients would be discharged, and urges the general public to continue to maintain social distancing as the use of facemasks alone may not independently avoid the risk of infection.
