This was disclosed in a statement released by Mosunmola Olabige, the chief press secretary to David Famuyiwa, chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo on Sunday, January 10. “In a swift reaction to contain and avert the spread of coronavirus in the communities, the Chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo LCDA has ordered the immediate closure of the Meiran Primary Health Centre. This became necessary as some members of staff of the health centre tested positive for the dreaded virus. The Chairman also ordered the immediate contact tracing of their colleagues and associates as well as patients who visited the facility in the last few days. He also used the medium to admonish the community members to take responsibility for their health and lives by avoiding social events that attract large gatherings, and by adhering strictly to the laid-down guidelines on the use of face masks, regular handwashing and the use of sanitisers, maintaining adequate social distancing while in public places in order to flatten the curve of the pandemic. ” Since the first cases of the virus were detected in the state in February 2020, Lagos has remained the epicenter in Nigeria with 35,448 confirmed cases. 28,734 patients have so far been treated and discharged while 256 deaths have sadly been recorded.
