- Governor Warns Lagosians to take the Infection Seriously
- As Lagos records the highest number of daily infection
Governor Babajide Sanwoolu has warned Lagosians to take the second wave of COVID-19 seriously.
He gave this remark in a statement published on his verified social media handle (Twitter).
He noted that:
“There is an urgent need for us to be more circumspect in the way we live, interact and socialize with our friends and family. Many people are ignoring #COVID19 warnings and guidelines, thereby exposing themselves and others to the virus.”
Confirming the highest number of daily infection, the Governor of Lagos State reacted that the state is presently battling with the second wave of the virus.
“We are well into the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yesterday, Lagos scarily recorded its highest number of infection in one day (712). We have already recorded a frightening spike in infection cases.”
“This spike brings positive cases to a total of 32,720 in Lagos alone.
This second wave comes with severe symptoms, and the higher number of positive cases we detect, the higher number of casualties we’re bound to record. We do not want this, but for this to be avoided, we must be intentional and cautious,” the Governor added.
Sanwoolu also noted that the State does not want to go into another lockdown, and also advised that every Lagosian follow the Covid-19 protocols.
“We also do not want to go into another lockdown. It is important that you wear your masks, avoid crowded areas, wash or sanitize your hands regularly, and practice social distancing.
“2021 will only work for us if we take #COVID19 seriously and follow the guidelines laid down by Lagos State Ministry of Health. We simply cannot afford to be complacent at this time. #TakeResponsibility” He said.
