Legit.ng gathers that the newly discharged patients are 28 females and 21 males, including a foreign national, a Greek.
The latest discharge is the highest so far in a single day as Lagos' total recoveries hit 187. According to the latest data from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Lagos state remains the epicentre of COVID-19 in Nigeria with 844 cases.
Legit.ng notes that 80 of the total cases in Lagos were recorded on Tuesday, April 28; the same day Nigeria recorded the highest daily figure so far, 195.
The Federal Capital Territory has 158 confirmed cases, the second-highest in the country while Kano occupies the third spot with 115 cases.
In another report, the Lagos government has asked all the people in the state to disregard the information circulating on social media that the coronavirus lockdown has been relaxed.
Legit.ng reports that Governor Sanwo-Olu made the denial on Wednesday, April 29, in a thread of tweet by his chief press secretary, Akosile.
The governor described the information as false and misleading, urging Lagosians to follow the government's directive.
The statement read: "Fake news: please disregard any piece of news, write up or forwarded information attributed to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, circulating majorly on WhatsApp platforms such as the one here.
"For the avoidance of doubt, the governor is yet to make pronouncements on the relaxation of lockdown in Lagos state."
Akosile, however, said that the governor would make a pronouncement about the relaxation of lockdown at the appropriate time in line with his regular updates on the COVID-19 situation in the state.
