More people have recovered from coronavirus (COVID-19) in Lagos State following the successful treatment of 42 patients in the state.

The incident commander and state governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced this in a statement on Friday.

He noted that the recovered patients included 32 Nigerians and 10 foreign nationals, comprising 17 females and 25 males,

Governor Sanwo-Olu said the patients were discharged from five government treatment centres in the state after they tested negative to the virus.

Eight recovered patients were discharged from Gbagada, five from Agidingbi, 15 from Eti-Osa (LandMark), six from Onikan, and eight from the Lagos University Teaching Hospitals (LUTH) isolation centres.

As part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 and flatten its curve, the governor warned residents that going to public places without wearing face masks has become a crime in the state.

He, therefore, asked them to continue to adhere strictly to all guidelines put in place to fight the threat of COVID-19 in Lagos.
