He said 33 new infections were confirmed out of the most recent 806 COVID-19 tests conducted.

This jerked up cases of the total number of confirmed cases in Lagos to 18,449.

The number of tests since the outbreak of the pandemic stands at 90,476.

“2,402 of the confirmed cases have since been discharged from #COVID-19 Care Centres following full recovery,” Abayomi tweeted.

“The 15,380 cases monitored in communities by Lagos Response Team have either fully recovered or positively responding to treatments.

“64 of the cases are currently under isolation in public and private care centres,” the official added.

Currently, 398 active cases in communities are yet to turn up for admission in COVID-19 care centres.
