COVID-19 third wave: Lagos govt orders 50% capacity for religious, event centres

Sanwo Olu

The Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said COVID-19 third wave has hit the state.

Sanwo-Olu stated this in an address on Sunday.

As a result, he directed that religious, event centres and other enclosed places are to henceforth operate at 50 percent capacity.

He said since the end of March 2021, the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lagos began to wind down.

Sanwo-Olu regretted that in spite of the hard work and dedicated efforts towards sustaining the return to normalcy, the state is finding itself at the start of a potential third wave.

Sanwo-Olu said between 8th May 2021 and 7th July 2021, a total of 50,322 passengers of interest arrived in Lagos via the Murtala Mohammed Airport.

About 18 percent could not be reached by EKOTELEMED because of the provision of either wrong numbers or wrong Nigerian contact details to be reached on.
