Sanwo-Olu, through his Twitter account, said that the patients were 14 males and two females, including three foreigners – British, Chinese and Polish citizens, were discharged to join the society.
According to him, 14 of the discharged patients were from the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, and two from Onikan Isolation Centre.
He said that the patients had fully recovered and tested negative twice consecutively to the virus.
“This brings the number of patients successfully managed and discharged from our facilities to 85.

“Please keep faith with us as we work to win this battle together.
“Thank you for your continued perseverance and patience,” Sanwo-Olu said.
