The Lagos State Government has announced that it would be offering free medical services to pregnant women and other persons with health emergencies in the state.
The State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announced this during a briefing on Saturday, as part of palliative measures to cushion the effect of the lockdown imposed to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, has tested negative for Coronavirus. Hamzat stated the result of his status through his twitter handle on Saturday. He said that the COVID-19 test was not a pleasant experience.
He said that it was important for him to do it because as a leader nothing should distract him from his role at this period. He thanked all health workers and appealed to the residents of the state to play their role and ended the tweet with the hashtag #StayHomeSaveLives.
