ABEOKUTA - The management of Federal Medial Centre, Idi- Aba, Abeokuta is set to discharge the two and half years old girl who tested positive for the novel coronavirus at the institution a month ago.

The toddler was admitted at the children emergency room on Sunday 13th June, 2020 on account of convulsion, high temperature and unconsciousness.

Following persistent high temperature, she was screened  for covid- 19 and the result returned positive.

The Medical Director said the girl is "presently stable and ambulant. She is being worked up for discharge and post discharge follow up clinic visits."
