Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi has tested positive for the dreaded Covid-19 and has therefore gone into isolation, according to his statement on his official Twitter handle. He, however, said he will continue to discharge his duties even while in isolation.
The statement read: “With utmost sense of responsibility, I am obliged to make it known to the general public that I have tested positive to #COVID19. Consequently, I have proceeded on a 14 days self- isolation and treatment at home.
“I have the full support of the Incident Commander and Governor of Lagos State @jidesanwoolu, the entire Cabinet of the government of Lagos state as well as my team @LSMOH to put this behind as soon as possible.
“I wish to assure you all that my family members and I are fine and are responding positively to treatment”, he said.
He assured that he remains committed to continue to discharge his duties as the Commissioner for Health and Deputy Incident Commander for #COVID19 responses in Lagos State, adding that he is extremely enthusiastic and hopeful of overcoming this phase of “our collective fight against COVID-19”.
