The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the ongoing lockdown in the state might be extended beyond 14 days.
He said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24.
The governor, however, assured residents that palliatives would be provided.
In his words, “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the coronavirus). We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.”
Presently, there are 2019 cases, 109 of which are recorded and being treated in Lagos State. The FG on March 29th issued a lockdown order for Lagos, Ogun and Abuja.
