The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, said on Sunday a 36-year-old man has died of COVID-19 in the state.
Abayomi, who disclosed this on his Twitter handle, said the man's death was the second recorded in the state.
He said: "We lost a #COVID-19 patient; a 36-year-old Nigerian, male, who died in a private facility on April 4, 2020.
"The total number of #COVID19 patients who have died are now two."
Abayomi, however, did not disclose further information on the patient's medical history.
He added that one of the state's COVID-19 patients had been evacuated, making it the second case to be evacuated from Nigeria back to their country.
The commissioner disclosed that one COVID-19 patient was discharged on April 4, bringing the number of patients who had fully recovered from the disease and discharged from the state's facility to 24. (NAN)
