Lagos State Health Commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi, took to his Twitter page to announce the goodnews.
On behalf of #COVID19Lagos Incident Commander, Governor of Lagos State @jidesanwoolu, I am excited to announce the successful delivery of a baby boy weighing 2.9kg by health workers of @LSMOH at the Gbagada #COVID19 Care Centre on Friday, May 16, 2020.
The mother of the baby: a 33 year old; #COVID19 patient was successfully operated upon by our management team trained in infection prevention and control as well as management of #COVID19 cases.
Routine monitoring of mother and baby by Paediatrician is ongoing as both baby and mother are in stable clinical conditions.
We wish to once again acknowledge our amazing heath care workers for their steadfastness at this challenging period.
Together we can defeat #COVID19 #ForGreaterLagos!
