The Lagos State Government has urged residents to take responsibility amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The state recently said Lagosians can do this by wearing face masks in public places to reduce the spread of the deadly virus.
According to Prof. Akin Abayomi, the State Commissioner for Health, the residents should keep washing their hands regularly while maintaining physical distancing to reduce the spread of the virus, because that is the only way to remain safe.
He added that ending community spread of #COVID-19 begins with every Lagosian.
His words, “Stopping community spread of #COVID-19 begins with you. Staying alive and safe together for a greater Lagos begins with Us! We Can Do It,”
Deputy governor Obafemi Hamzat added, “Tell your husband to wear a mask. ”Tell your friend to wear a mask. ”Don’t wait till you spot the police before wearing a mask. “The mask is not that the government is trying to punish you or being overzealous. “A mask can save your life or someone else’s.”
