It was a moment of joy and celebration by health workers when the mother finally gave birth to the baby boy early in the morning.
Announcing the great feat recorded by the State Government through her health workers, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said the feat “is another validation of the government’s position to stamp out the Coronavirus virus from our state.
He said: “I bring you great news from our isolation facilities. Today, a pregnant COVID19 positive patient was delivered of a baby boy through the caesarian session 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.”
