Lagos State Commissioner for Health Prof. Akin Abayomi said yesterday that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is feeling much better and is awaiting a complete clearance of the virus before resuming public activities.

Abayomi spoke on Monday through tweets on his official Twitter account @ProfAkinAbayomi, while giving an update on the COVID-19 status of the governor.

Sanwo-Olu tested positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 12 after his exposure to an infected patient.  The governor had since then been on isolation and undergoing home-based COVID-19 treatment.
