Lagos To Relax Lock Down By Next Week - Gov Sanwoolu

NEWS - Posted on: 21st Apr. 2020 at 5:00PM

Lagos State has been on lockdown for over three weeks now. This is to curtail the spread of COVID-19 and it seems to be paying off as no record of a new case since yesterday, however, there were two deaths. 

The governor has hinted that the lockdown might be relaxed by next week, but people will be asked to wear facemask in public places. 

The governor, Babajide Sanwoolu said via his twitter page as follows:

"Lagos is now seeing a slow spread of community transmission of COVID19 and as such we are considering mandatory use of face masks in our plan to contain #COVID19.

The rise in new cases is as a success of our house-to-house contact tracing and ramping up of tests across 20 LGAs.

We encourage residents not to panic but to ensure strict #SocialDistancing and good hygiene. 

Let us avoid stigmatising those who have been discharged as this will encourage those experiencing symptoms to come forward instead of seeking private help and hiding travel history."
