The Enugu state government has discharged its second COVID-19 patient.

Ikechukwu Obi, the state commissioner for health, announced this in a statement on Thursday evening.

The commissioner said the patient had recovered and tested negative for the disease.

The state, which had just two confirmed cases, discharged its first COVID-19 patient on Wednesday.

According to Obi, two of them are now negative for the virus and have been discharged.

“We encourage our people to continue to stay home, try not to touch your face without having washed your hands, maintain strict hand and respiratory hygiene, wear a face mask in line with the NCDC’s advisory and maintain physical distancing,” he said.

The commissioner appealed to residents to call the designated helplines to report any suspected cases of COVID-19.

Ogun, Lagos, Bauchi, Kwara and the federal capital territory (FCT) had discharged patients earlier on Thursday.

A total of 442 cases have been confirmed in 19 states and the FCT. Of that figure, 152 patients have been discharged.

Lagos has the highest number of confirmed cases with 251 patients, as well as the highest number of recoveries; 90 patients have been discharged.

The FCT has the second-highest number of confirmed cases with 67 patients, while Kano has the third-highest with 21 cases.
