Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, has revealed that 4,176 persons infected with coronavirus in the State were undergoing home-based treatment amid the second wave of infections across Nigeria, and the world at large.
Prof Abayomi disclosed the figure on Friday, January 1, 2021 via his Twitter handle, @ProfAkinAbayomi, noting that 115 cases were in isolation.
Total number of #COVID19 recovery in communities – 22,789; cases currently under isolation – 115; active cases under home-based care – 4,176; new #COVID19 related death – 3; total deaths – 240.
He put the number of COVID-19 cases discharged from Lagos care centres at 2,901 while three new coronavirus-related deaths were recorded, bringing the total COVID-19 induced fatalities in the state to 240.
The commissioner also identified five top high burden local government areas in the state with COVID-19 cases as Eti-Osa, Ajeromi, Surulere, Amuwo-Odofin and Mushin.
He appealed to people to stay safe, avoid crowded places and celebrate responsibly, warning that those who have no reason to move around should stay at home.
Meanwhile, some state governments have fired back at the Federal Government, saying they are not responsible for low COVID-19 testing in their states.
The states are Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Zamfara, and Osun.
Some of the state governments outrightly debunked that they were not conducting enough tests, while others like Anambra blamed the low testing on religious leaders who make their followers believe that the coronavirus was a farce.
Federal Government had on Tuesday complained that despite the resources available to states, the test they were conducting was still low.
Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, in its statistics released last Sunday, listed eight states and the Federal Capital Territory with the high number of tests.
They are the Federal Capital Territory with 119,843 tests; Rivers, 84,553; Kano, 61,768; Ogun, 44,398; Plateau, 43,063; Kaduna, 39,642; Oyo, 30,579; Gombe, 28,806; and Delta, 23,116.
The states with low tests conducted, according to NCDC, are Kogi, 451; Zamfara, 1,211; Cross River, 2,166; Kebbi, 2,766; Jigawa, 3,273; Anambra, 3,395; Akwa Ibom, 4,143; Adamawa, 4,649; Yobe, 4,277; and Osun, 6,379.
