A COVID-19 positive female patient successfully delivered a baby boy in Lagos on Saturday and both baby and mother are doing well.
The baby was delivered through a caesarean section at the Gbagada isolation centre.
Announcing the great feat recorded by the State Government through health workers, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said the feat is another validation of the government’s position that it would stamp out the Coronavirus virus from the State.
Sanwo-Olu said: “I bring you great news from our isolation facilities. Today, a pregnant COVID19 positive patient was delivered of a baby boy through the caesarean section at the Gbagada Isolation Centre. Both Mother and baby are doing well.
“Today’s achievement is a pointer that our strategies in Lagos state are working and yielding the desired results. It is also a sign of victory and motivation for us as we push ahead in the battle against the Coronavirus pandemic.”
Sanwo-Olu also announced the discharge of 67 more patients from four isolation centres after testing negative two consecutive times for the Coronavirus.
