With the high rising case of Covid-19 in Nigeria, it’s no longer a news that there’s a chance of another lockdown coming in place.
Lagos state government has already started taking measures in order to curtail the spread of the virus ever since the state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu contacted the virus. Releasing a press statement on Friday the 18th of December, worship centers are to hold each service for not more than two hours and the gathering shouldn’t exceed 50% of the building capacity.
Concerts, carnivals and Street parties are banned in the state until further notice. Also event planners are to contact the Lagos State Safety Commission to get a clearance and should also make sure the gathering doesn’t exceed 300 people.
Beginning from Monday, the 21st of December, public servants below Grade Level 14, with an exception of emergency workers and first responders are to work from home for the next 14 days. Schools are not exempted as all should be closed until further notice.
However, there will be no closure of economic activities due to the recession in the country. Hence, everyone is advised to take responsibility for their actions. Also, a total lockdown for now seems unlikely due to the information available.
