Lagos state commissioner of health, Professor Akin Abayomi, has debunked reports making round that he has tested positive for Coronavirus.
On Thursday May 7, the commissioner announced via Twitter that 10 associates of the Lagos State House in Marina had tested positive for the virus. Some reports claimed he was one of the 10.
However earlier today, the commissioner reacted to the news saying its fake and should be disregarded.
”I hereby implore the general public to disregard the fake and misleading news circulating in the media to the effect that I have tested positive to #COVID19 infection.
It is evident that the fake news is calculated at causing panic and unnecessary anxiety amongst the populace.
I therefore urge the public to disregard any news on #COVID19 that does not emanate from @followslasg official communication channels and other verifiable sources.”he tweeted
