SWITZERLAND, MAY 21 – Lagos state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi has said mild cases of coronavirus will be managed at home, adding that they will now be concentrating on isolating people with severe cases.

The Commissioner stated this on Wednesday during a discussion on Instagram on the effects of COVID-19 on the health care system.

He said the decision became necessary as they’ve exceeded the containment phase and now at the active community transmission stage.

He added that they will intensify home treatment for Coronavirus patients with mild symptoms, as isolation centers are running out of bed spaces following increased cases of Coronavirus in the state.

“We have exceeded the containment phase now. We are at the active community transmission stage.

“We will be concentrating on people with severe cases and isolating them while mild cases will be managed at home. Our attention is shifting to community-based isolation.”
