Coronavirus: We will ban public gatherings if cases escalate – Governor Sanwo-Olu

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced that he will be banning public gatherings if cases of coronavirus in the state escalates.


Speaking at a press conference held at the State House in Marina on Friday February 28, the Governor said taking such measures now will create panic in the state.


Sanwo-Olu also disclosed that the index case of coronavirus in Nigeria who has already been isolated at the state’s bio-security facility in Yaba, is not ‘highly contagious’ at the moment.


He said;


“It is only when there is a high level of escalation that the public can be panicky and this is when we realise that it is getting to person-to-person transmission.

“As we have said, this isolated case has been contained right from the hospital where he was first admitted and the guesthouse he slept after his arrival in Nigeria.

“It is when there is a person-to-person infection that we can trigger another level of isolation and curtail public events where a large number of people can gather. But I don’t think we have gotten to that level yet.”
