0 59

Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi has once again said that Lagos state is at risk of a second Covid-19 lockdown due to lack of adherence to the COVID-19 protocols and safety guidelines by citizens.

Abayomi said this in a statement on Tuesday.

He stressed the need for residents to strictly comply with the standard guidelines against the virus. He noted that a resurgence of cases in Lagos could also lead to the reversal of the strategically calculated measures put in place to open up the economy.

He said: “Lagos has since become the epicentre of the outbreak in Nigeria with a record of 21,107 confirmed cases and 212 deaths from the virus till date.

“The containment measures put in place at the time included COVID-19 testing, isolation and treatment, surveillance, total shutdown of the State for about 12 weeks and a partial shutdown of social, economic and academic activities for over four months.”

He therefore advised citizens to be cautious in their daily activities and refrain from unnecessary social gatherings, unless it is absolutely necessary.
