The Lagos state Government says it may reimpose another lockdown if there is a recurrence of high Covid-19 cases in the state.
“The Lagos State Government has once again stressed the need for residents to strictly adhere to precautionary measures against COVID-19 infection transmission to prevent a recurrence of the situation that led to the lockdown of the economy.
“A resurgence of cases in Lagos may lead to the reversal of the strategically calculated measures put in place by the Government to open up the economy.
The Director, Public Affairs of the Ministry of Health, Tunbosun Ogunbanwo made this known in a press statement.
The Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi was quoted as saying that many countries around the world have found it necessary to impose a second lockdown and restriction of movements, which have significant socio-economic and security consequences.
The Commissioner also advised citizens against unnecessary movement and social gatherings, “unless it is absolutely necessary stressing that travelling into and outside the Country should be discouraged except when absolutely necessary”.
