Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to say that any coronavirus patient who lies about his or her travel history will be prosecuted from now on.
He revealed this during a press briefing at the State House Marina today.
According to him, the government will no longer allow these patients to endanger their own lives and that of Lagosians by keeping the truth away from their caregivers.
He added that health workers should also raise alarm immediately they notice lies and deception from anyone receiving treatment.
His words, “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.”
