Following the announcement made by The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the ongoing lockdown in the state might be extended beyond 14 days “if there is a need”. He said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things and in consultation with the Federal Government.
Sanwo-Olu said the restrictive measures were helpful in curbing the disease, noting that the lockdown had afforded the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control to keep up and make appropriate progress in tracing of contacts.
The restrictions have started paying off; the NCDC has told us that they have been abl
e to take advantage of the absence of traffic on our roads to make appreciable progress in their contact tracing,” he added. The governor also said that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24. “We got one discharged patient today (Saturday),” he added. On alleged assault of residents by enforcement agents, Sanwo-Olu said, “There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far.
I always tell them to ‘wear a human face’.”
