The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known, saying that they died of Coronavirus-related complications.

Abayomi, through his Twitter account, said the deceased were males and aged 51, 52 and 62.

He said that one of the deceased was a medical doctor that had contact with an infected person who recently returned to the country.

The commissioner, who did not give details of two others, simply said, “Other victims have no travel history or record of contact with any infected person.”

He added, “Unfortunately, Lagos recorded 3 additional deaths from #COVID19 related complications. The deceased are males aged 51, 52 and 62. One of the dead; a medical doctor had contact with an infected person who recently returned to the country.
