COVID-19: Lagos Faces Risk Of Second Lockdown – Lagos Health Commissioner

Alerts residents on the possible second wave of infections and strictly adhere to safety protocols

The Lagos State Government has warned residents that the continuous flagrant disregard for ravaging COVID-19 pandemic protocols and safety guidelines by citizens could lead to the second wave of new infections in Lagos.

It, therefore, stressed the need for residents to strictly adhere to precautionary measures against COVID-19 infection transmission to prevent a recurrence of the situation that initially led to the lockdown of the economy.

State, Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, who gave the warning on Tuesday, noted that a resurgence of cases in Lagos could also lead to the reversal of the strategically calculated measures put in place by the government to open up the economy.

Abayomi, who is also a COVID-19 survivor, while speaking on the effort being made by the state government to sustain the gains that have been made to control the global pandemic in the state, explained that many countries and cities are experiencing a second and third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic with a resultant spike in the number of cases and fatalities.

He stated that many of the affected countries around the world have found it necessary to impose a second lockdown and restriction of movements, which have significant socioeconomic and security consequences.
