COVID-19: Lagos intensifies public sensitization on the second wave.


The sensitization team engaged members of the general public at markets, motor mechanic workshops, garages, and parks at Agege, Ojota, Ikeja, Ogba, Alausa Secretariat, and environs.

They addressed the individuals and obtained suggestions, just as essential Information, Education and Communication materials such as flyers and posters have been distributed.

Adeni-Awosika mentioned that there was a necessity for adherence to guidelines stipulated by the federal government to curtail the spread of the deadly virus.

Based on him, the state government is dismayed with the flagrant disregard for COVID-19 protocols by members of the general public.

People mingle without adherence to physical distancing, face masks are not worn in public places, while hand sanitizers are absent in most public and private institutions.

“Such practices expose individuals to COVID-19. Everyone must take responsibility to stop the spread of this deadly virus by obeying all guidelines. COVID -19 is real,” he stated.

Adeni-Awosika suggested transport operators always check the temperature of commuters and to desist from flouting physical distancing protocols relating to the variety of passengers allowed in their business vehicles.

Throughout the sensitization, fliers have been also distributed to pedestrians and motorists at numerous locations.

Traditional, religious, and opinion leaders in communities, Community Development Committees, and Community Development Associations have been enjoined to influence their followers to abide by government directives, in order to end the pandemic.
