the first Coronavirus patient in Lagos has now tested

NEGATIVEFLASH: The Index patient, the Italian man, who was the first Coronavirus patient in Lagos has now tested NEGATIVE and freed to go home.*

Below is a statement from the Governor of Lagos state, detailing how collaboration by concerned federal and states' authorities led to this breakthrough:

As the COVID-19 Incident Commander for Lagos, I am glad to inform you that the index case; the Italian gentleman is now negative.

Through a combined effort of Lagos, Ogun State and Fed Health Authorities, we were able to limit the transmission of the virus to a single contact.

This involved aggressive contact tracing and containment strategies. However we now have several new imported cases and we hope we can apply the same contact tracing strategy along with social distancing to slow down the outbreak which may be brewing from these new cases.

The index patient consented to donating one unit of white blood (plasma) before he was discharged today. The blood plasma is rich in antibody proteins that target #COVID19 virus.

The white blood plasma is frozen in our Bio-bank and will be useful in handling new cases. 

The blood plasma will be beneficial for the treatment of new patients in the absence of a defined therapeutic drug for #COVID19 yet.

The patient appreciated the exceptional care and support given to him by staff of the infectious Disease Hospital,Yaba and all members of the EOC 

The EOC team was extremely happy to bid the patient farewell.

Once again, we will like to convey the enthusiasm of the team to do the very best possible in handling incidents of #COVID19.
