The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, says the state’s COVID-19 related deaths have increased to 200.


Abayomi made the disclosure on his Twitter account on Monday while giving the state’s COVID-19 update for Aug. 8.

According to him, 2 #COVID-19 related deaths were recorded. Total number of #COVID-19 related deaths now stands at 200.

He said that 71 new COVID-19 infections were confirmed out of a total of 844 COVID-19 tests conducted in the state on the reported day.

Abayomi said that the new cases brought the total numbers of confirmed COVID-19 infections in Lagos to 15,797.

He added that the total number of COVID-19 tests conducted in the state since inception of the pandemic now stands at 68,929.

The commissioner said: “2,269 of the confirmed cases have since been discharged from #COVID-19 Care Centres following full recovery.”
