Reports making the rounds that the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, has tested positive for COVID-19, have been debunked by the Lagos State government, through its Ministry of Health, describing the news as absolute falsehood, fabricated by mischief makers.

The Director of Public Affairs in the ministry, Mr. Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, in a statement, urged the public to disregard the information in its entirety, saying the authors are out to create unnecessary panic and fear amongst the populace.

Affirming that Professor Abayomi is hale, hearty and in good health, as he diligently continues to discharge his responsibilities as the Deputy Incident Commander of the #COVID19Lagos Intervention Team constituted to battle the deadly virus in Lagos, Ogunbanwo implored citizens to desist from disseminating fake news and implored those who seek and share information to rely only on the official and verified communication channels – @followlasg and @LSMOH for #COVID19Lagos news
