…As Gov Sanwo-Olu Threatens Patients Who Conceal Travel History With Prosecution
The Lagos State Government will commence strict enforcement of face masks as part of measures to flatten the curve of #Covid19 pandemic from next week, the State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said.
The Governor said wearing of face masks would be made compulsory for residents, just as he expressed optimism that the move would help to curb the spread of coronavirus in the state.
The Governor said this during a media briefing on COVID-19 updates held at Lagos House, Marina.
He said: “From next week, we are going to be making face masks compulsory in Lagos state. We have commissioned more than one million face masks to be distributed in the state.”
Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu has said patients who lie about their travel history will be prosecuted.
“These patients do not only endanger their lives but the lives of our front line medical personnel. We already have some names and they will be prosecuted duly.
“We would therefore like to appeal to our health workers to raise alarm as soon as they notice anything of sort,” he stated.
