Sanwo-Olu Calls For Calm As Lagos Slips Into Third Wave Of COVID-19

Lagos, the epicenter of Coronavirus in Nigeria, has slipped into the third wave of the deadly virus.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced this at a press briefing in Lagos on Sunday.

He said the state will do everything possible to prevent a massive outbreak, threatening imprisonment of travellers who fail to release number through which they can be contacted.

“Fellow Lagosians, It has become imperative to once again provide you an update on the Coronavirus pandemic situation in Lagos State, and our ongoing response as a State Government.”

“Starting around the end of March 2021, the second wave of the COVID19 pandemic in Lagos State began to wind down, and we began to enjoy some reprieve from the worst effects of the virus.

“This allowed us to further open-up the economy to allow the start of the journey towards full normalcy in our lives and the pursuit of livelihoods, after what has been a very difficult year.

“Regrettably, in spite of the hard work and dedicated efforts towards sustaining the return to normalcy, over the last three months, we are now finding ourselves at what appears to be the start of a potential 3rd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, in Lagos State,” the governor said.

Sanwo-Olu charged residents to comply with COVID-19 protocols, saying “Nigeria is counting on us in Lagos State to be resolute in our stand against the virus.”

“We will continue to test aggressively. We will also focus on sequencing the samples we are collecting to ensure we are detecting and keeping track of the different variants in circulation. It is only by testing and sequencing comprehensively that we can collect the data required for informed decision-making.

He also asked Lagosians to desist from patronising non-accredited COVID-19 treatment centers.
