Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says a total lockdown is imminent if the cases of coronavirus continue to increase.
Sanwo-Olu said this while giving an update on the situation of the pandemic in the state at the State House in Marina.
However, the state Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, in an earlier press briefing said the state might witness 39 thousand cases of COVID-19 in a worst-case scenario.
Abayomi, therefore, urged residents to adhere to the social distancing rules to contain the spread of the disease.
The commissioner added that the state was tracing 3 thousand contacts who might have had contact with some of the confirmed cases.
