Following Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide SanwoOlu exposure to a confirmed case of #COVID19, a PCR test performed yesterday the 11th of December has confirmed that he has indeed been infected with the virus which is supported by mild symptoms and fatigue typical of a mild case of COVID.
Mr Governor is receiving treatment and is being closely monitored at home by the very experienced State #COVID19 clinical team from IDH Yaba.
Mr Sanwo-Olu is doing well on treatment and rest and we are confident that he will recover quickly and clear the virus.
We are seeing slightly increasing number of #COVID19 positive cases in clusters in Lagos and all residents and visitors should strictly adhere to the prescribed advisories of safe distancing, mask wearing, good hand and respiratory hygiene and avoidance of unnecessary or large gatherings.
The festive season is likely to create the opportunity for the virus to spread if we are not compliant with the regulations established by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) for inbound travelers and the festive season celebrations.
All inbound travelers must be #COVID19 negative by PCR before they board a flight to Nigeria and must self-isolate on arrival and undergo a prebooked test on day 7 of arrival in Nigeria.
Lagosians should keep celebrations to a minimum and be observant and responsible in their interactions. The significant gains achieved to date in containing #COVID19 in Lagos, which has allowed us to carefully re open the economy, must not be reversed.
