The state recently said Lagosians can do this by wearing face masks in public places to reduce the spread of the deadly virus.
According to Prof. Akin Abayomi, the State Commissioner for Health, the residents should keep washing their hands regularly while maintaining physical distancing to reduce the spread of the virus, because that is the only way to remain safe.
He added that ending community spread of #COVID-19 begins with every Lagosian.
His words, “Stopping community spread of #COVID-19 begins with you. Staying alive and safe together for a greater Lagos begins with Us! We Can Do It,”
Deputy governor Obafemi Hamzat added, “Tell your husband to wear a mask. ”Tell your friend to wear a mask. ”Don’t wait till you spot the police before wearing a mask. “The mask is not that the government is trying to punish you or being overzealous. “A mask can save your life or someone else’s.”

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.
Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses. The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.
Human coronaviruses were first discovered in the late 1960s. The earliest ones discovered were an infectious bronchitis virus in chickens and two in human patients with the common cold (later named human coronavirus 229E and human coronavirus OC43). Other members of this family have since been identified, including SARS-CoV in 2003, HCoV NL63 in 2004, HKU1 in 2005, MERS-CoV in 2012, and SARS-CoV-2 (formerly known as 2019-nCoV) in 2019. Most of these have involved serious respiratory tract infections.
