“The babies were delivered by caesarean section on Tuesday, May 19th.
“The mother and babies are doing well. Once again, we celebrate our employees committed to the front line for this achievement. "We also appreciate the support of the Federal Government, the Lagos State Government and the Nigeria Disease Control Center."
