The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a statement has called for action as he stressed that now is the time to be smart and stand together.
Recall that the Lagos state government close down schools and limited religious gathering, which are part of efforts to combat coronavirus.
The Governor in his call to action said,
“As a responsible government, we must take actions to protect our residents from physical and other potential threats. After consulting with our healthcare professionals over #COVID19, we are closing down schools and limiting religious gathering.
We are limiting gatherings and events to no more than 50 people and appropriate social distancing must be observed. The required government agencies will be monitoring. Let us take #COVID19 seriously and observe good personal hygiene and other recommended precautions.
Lagos holds a strategic position as a force for commerce, trade and travel so we are working with our healthcare professionals and our immigration agencies to strictly enforce the travel restrictions and other measures for #COVID19. Now is the time to be smart and stand together.
