Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi has disclosed that the state is currently in the stage of community spread of Coronavirus.
The health commissioner who disclosed this in an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Saturday warned residents of the state against the stigmatization of Coronavirus patients.
“We are in the stage of community spread and we are trying to manage it. We are doing everything possible to ensure that Lagosians are informed, Lagosians are able to take the appropriate amount of risk based on their circumstances and that we are taking the right kind of support for the people.”
Commenting on the adverse effect defying of lockdown orders have in the fight against Coronavirus,
“I think every segment of Lagos requires a slightly different strategy. It can’t be on cap fits all.“Someone in Victoria Island doesn’t have the same priorities as someone in Makoko and there is a whole range in between. I think what Mr Governor is doing is that he is trying to size up all the respective situations.
“He gets a situation analysis every day, he debates with cabinet, data is very critical, we supply data on a daily basis and with that data, it helps you to change your policies and the policies are changing every 24 hours based on what we are finding and based on hot spots.”
