Of the 60, 31 were discharged from the Mainland Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, 19 from the Ibeju-Lekki Isolation Centre and 10 from Eti-Osa Isolation centre.

The latest discharges raise the total number of cases successfully managed in the state to 321.

As of Monday evening, Lagos had recorded 1,183 COVID-19 infections, according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

On Monday, the federal government eased weeks of lockdown imposed on the state to limit the virus spread.
