Nigeria has made a lot of progress in preparing and responding to disease outbreaks and epidemics. I remember my early days of public health; some 15yrs ago it's @WHONigeria that prepared and shared the #weeklyepidemiological report for Nigeria... a thread!

#Clap4NCDC
For every outbreak or public health emergency in Nigeria, we heard more about @WHO who appeared to be at the forefront with @Fmohnigeria and its agencies; old #NPI which merged with @NphcdaNG fought #polio with the support of @WHO @UNICEF @Rotary etc.
#Clap4NCDC 2/20
With time the #Epidemiology unit of @Fmohnigeria grew in strength and capacity to lead the response. They also produced and sent out the weekly epidemiology reports for Nigeria, which hitherto was shared by @WHONigeria in collaboration with FMOH for sure. #Clap4NCDC

Flattening The Curve

@followlasg strategies are in line with what is called flattening the curve to ensure there are not too many #COVID19 patients in a short period of time that will overwhelm our health infrastructures.
Testing capacity ramped up.Testing is now done in 4 centers; @LagosBiobank @LUTHofficial @nimrnigeria and @weare54gene

Over 1507 cases diagnosed, 406 discharged , 1037 active and 33 #COVID19 related deaths recorded so far.
Lagos mainland has majority of #COVID19 cases.

Alimosho, Oshodi, mushin, ikeja, kosofe and Isolo are having more #COVID19 cases.

New cases detected in Ojo.

The State is using this data to plan its strategies and where to place increased surveillance and isolation capacity.

@jidesanwoolu DELAYS RESUMPTION OF CIVIL SERVANTS, AS LOCKDOWN DIRECTIVE EXPIRES

…Markets to open for three days weekly in alternation

…Governor releases numbers for whistleblowers to report erring companies

@LSMOH
The five-week lockdown imposed by the @FGNigeria on Lagos State and two other states to combat #coronavirus Disease (#COVIDー19) will be eased on Monday (tomorrow), but Lagos State Government has asked all its civil servants not to resume for work immediately.
Governor @jidesanwoolu, in a briefing on Sunday at the State House in Marina, said the delayed resumption of the State’s workforce is a deliberate attempt to prevent a development that may lead to a crowding of people on the roads and public places.

All aged residents who are above 60 years old and registered with the Lagos State Residents’ Registration Agency, LASRRA, were sent text messages and requested to confirm the accuracy of their details, such as name and home address. #foragreaterlagos #lockdown #covid19lagos
They have since responded to the text messages so as to benefit from the package. It is a misconception that it was meant for all Lagosians.
The food relief materials for the above 60 group are being delivered directly to the beneficiaries by representatives of the State Government based on the data with the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency.

He was on strong immune suppression drugs for the kidney transplant.
He was admitted on the night of April 2nd, 2020 on presumption of complications from the kidney transplant.
He did not provide full account of his travel history or medical circumstances to the attending doctors in keeping with global trend and to enable guided treatment for #COVID19 related vulnerability due to severe underlying ill health.

FLASH: The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to news reports that Lagos is on lockdown following Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s update on the steps taken to curtail the spread of Coronavirus.
#COVID19 #COVID19Lagos
The impression created by such reports is erroneous; Lagos is not on lockdown despite the stringent measures introduced by the government.
Mr. Governor, who is the Incident Commander, only urged private sector establishments to introduce measures that will support the government’s efforts at curtailing the spread of COVID-19.

It is important for parents to ensure that their children practise ‘social distancing’ while at home, wash their hands regularly or use hand sanitizers and observe high standards of personal hygiene.
Children should be encouraged to remain at home
