The Lagos State Government has come out to say that there is an increase of positive cases of coronavirus in the state.

The government recently revealed that Lagosians should expect a likely possibility of the emergence of a second wave amid the pandemic.

According to Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, this reality is not peculiar to Lagos alone, as the entire nation is experiencing a rise in the numbers of confirmed cases of coronavirus disease.

He added that out of every 100 tests that are now performed, an average of 10 turn out to be positive, so residents must be very cautious.

His words, “This is an increase from the five per hundred recorded in September, but lower than our peak in August which was between 20 and 30 per hundred.

“This suggests the existence of active community transmission, and represents the very likely possibility of the emergence of a second wave in Lagos State.

“This second wave calls for a full re-awakening of caution and precaution.

“The complacency that crept in over the last few months as a result of our early interventions when cases started to decline from our peak in August, must now give way to an abundance of vigilance.”

“Dear Lagosians, this overwhelming non-compliance with guidelines meant to keep us all safe is very disheartening.

“This is especially when we consider that the message at the heart of Christmas is one of sacrifice and sacrificial conduct; embodied by the Holy Bible in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

“Christmas is a commemoration of this supreme act of sacrifice by God. The least we can do in this season is to emulate that spirit of sacrifice, by abiding with difficult but necessary protective guidelines, for the greater good of all of us.

“This is certainly not the time to lower our guard against the coronavirus; it is instead time to step up our battle against this stubborn virus that has gripped the world for several months now.”
