Lagos Commissioner for Health, reacts to reports claiming he tested positive for COVID-19

The Commissioner for Health in Lagos state, Professor Akin Abayomi has debunked reports claiming that he tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

This is coming barely 24 hours after he announced on Thursday, May 7 via his Twitter handle 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, Professor Abayomi in a disclaimer he posted on his Twitter handle on Friday morning described the reports as fake news.

“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.
