    Sanwo-Olu To Impose Second Lockdown In Lagos Over COVID-19 Second-wave If…

    Indications have emerged that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State is planning to impose fresh lockdown in the state following rising cases of COVID-19 and non-adherence to safety protocols by residents.
    In a series of post on his verified Twitter handle @jidesanwoolu, the Lagos governor urged residents to comply with all safety protocols amid spike in cases of COVID-19.

    Sanwo-Olu wrote: “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.

    “We are well into the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yesterday, (Tuesday) 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.

    “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 and Presidential Task Force, PTF, on COVID-19.

    “We simply cannot afford to be complacent at this time.”

    But Vanguard gathered that this is coming after Governor Sanwo-Olu summoned a meeting of all relevant authorities, particularly health experts to a crucial meeting at Lagos House Marina, where they deliberated on the alarming rate of COVID-19 and the need to stop it at all costs before getting out of hands.

    Speaking on the meeting, a source said: “As we speak (on Tuesday noon), the governor is meeting with health authorities and relevant members of the State Executive Council over the unabated rising cases of COVID-19 in the state.

    “Therefore, as one of pragmatic measures to drastically curb the wave the state government may likely impose second lockdown soon, mildly though if present situation persists. That’s all I can say about it for now.”
