Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has urged citizens not to relax now because COVID-19 is not a hoax nor a glamourous disease.
He said, “Lagosians #COVID19 is not a glamorous disease, neither is it a hoax. You need to follow the safety guidelines to safeguard your friends and loved ones”, he tweeted on Sunday.
He gave the warning as he also announced the activation of an oxygen plant at the state’s Infectious Diseases Hospital in Yaba.
“We have activated a new oxygen plant which will help by providing much-needed oxygen to patients.
“The plant will supplement oxygen supply to about 300 cylinders per day and 6 cylinders per hour.
“We are working to ensure patients receive the best care at our state facilities”, Sanwo-Olu said.
He said this hours after the Lagos State Police Command arrested and paraded 243 violators of the COVID-19 protocols in the state.
