According to him, if the government had not been proactive, the Lagos would have by now recorded 6,000 cases rather than the 1,491 cases recorded so far.
He, however, noted that 97 per cent of positive cases at its isolation centres were mild and moderate cases.
Abayomi said that plans have been concluded to commence hydroxychloroquine clinical trial next week for treatment of #COVID19 patients.
