2683 persons who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Lagos 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.

This is according to the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi.

 

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