COVID-19 scare has hit the Lagos State Government House, Alausa, as the state governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has gone into self-isolation.
Sanwo-Olu’s action occurred immediately one of his close aides tested positive for the COVID-19 Thursday, 10th of December.
The State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known in a statement on Friday, in which he said the Governor and other members of his team will be tested by the Lagos State biobank today but will remain in isolation until the results of the tests are available
“We are seeing slightly increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in clusters in Lagos and all Lagosians should adhere to the prescribed advisories of safe distancing, good hand and respiratory hygiene and avoidance of unnecessary gatherings,” part of the statement reads.
Governor Sanwo-Olu is not new to the COVID-19 test. The governor has had no fewer than three since May when he announced that 10 of his aides tested positive for the virus.
