Third Wave: Sanwo-Olu Cautions Lagosians As 30 Die Of COVID-19 In One Week

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday, cautioned residents on the
frightening figures of hospitalisations and fatalities resulting from coronavirus.

He confirmed that Lagos State had been recording a daily average of six deaths at its isolation centres in the last one week.

According to him, no fewer than 30 persons have died of COVID-19 in the state in few days.

The Governor, who spoke at the State House in Alausa, disclosed that there had been an eight-fold increase in infection rate in Lagos, resulting in 4,300 confirmed cases in July alone, while 352 patients were admitted into the State-run isolation facilities.

The situation, Sanwo-Olu said, called for improved vigilance and personal responsibility, urging the residents to reactivate the preventive protocols to break the cycle of infection currently ravaging the State.

Sanwo-Olu said all existing rules and guidelines on social and public gatherings remained in place and must be obeyed.

He directed public and private establishments, entertainment spots and worship centres to continue providing sanitising materials and ensure no person is allowed into their premises without the use of face masks.
