We have now reported over 100,000 confirmed #COVID19 cases in Nigeria

This is a stark reminder of the reality we live in now - a virus that has affected over 100,000 lives and led to over 1,300 deaths within 11 months in Nigeria...with millions more globally

In the last 4 weeks, we‘ve recorded a spike in the number of new #COVID19 cases

The virus is spreading fast, causing mild symptoms in some & severe illness/death in others. Many people
continue to experience fatigue & other symptoms even after recovery

We can not be too careful
The silent face of #COVID19

You can’t tell whether someone has the virus or not (so take protective measures at all times)

Health care workers need to now maintain a HIGHER index of suspicion for #COVID19

To the public, if unwell rule out COVID-19 before treating for malaria

There is an urgent need for us to be more circumspect in the way we live, interact and socialize with our friends and family. Many people are ignoring #COVID19 warnings and guidelines, thereby exposing themselves and others to the virus.
We are well into the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yesterday, Lagos scarily recorded its highest number of infection in one day (712. We have already recorded a frightening spike in infection cases.
This spike brings positive cases to a total of 32,720 in Lagos alone.
This second wave comes with severe symptoms, and the higher number of positive cases we detect, the higher number of casualties we’re bound to record. We do not want this, but for this to be avoided, we must be intentional and cautious.

With utmost sense of responsibility, I am obliged to make it known to the general public that I have tested positive to #COVID19.

Consequently, I have proceeded on a 14 days self- isolation and treatment at home.
Nevertheless, I remain committed to continue to discharge my duties as the Commissioner for Health and Deputy Incident Commander for #COVID19 responses in Lagos State.

I am extremely enthusiastic and hopeful of overcoming this phase of our collective fight against #COVID19.
I have the full support of the Incident Commander and Governor of Lagos State @jidesanwoolu, the entire Cabinet of the Government of Lagos State as well as my team @LSMOH to put this behind as soon as possible.

Today is #WorldSickleCellDay & we want you to know more about #SickleCellDisease.

It is an inherited blood disease, that causes the red blood cells to have sickle shape thereby, disrupting the free flow of blood & oxygen in the body. #KnowYourGenotype
People living with #SickleCellDisease, may often experience serious pains, weakness of the body, delayed growth & development.

They may also look pale due to shortage of blood
as a result of the sudden breakdown of red blood cells in the body .
Factors such as cold weather, too much exercise, tobacco smoke, lack of fluid, plane flights & high altitudes can contribute to the painful attacks (crisis), experienced by those living with #sicklecelldisease.

Dear Lagos,

Due to the continuous increase of #COVID19 cases in our state, we have rescinded till further notice our earlier decision to open churches and mosques for worship.

We are now fully in the phase of personal responsibility regarding this pandemic. ImageImage
We must continue to #TakeResponsibility with the mandatory use of face masks in public places, avoiding non-essential movements, staying at home when we have no business outside, and washing or sanitizing our hands regularly. Image
These are the simple but necessary steps that will save and protect us. We cannot afford to be lax and lethargic about safety precautions at this time.

We will, as always, continue to keep you informed and updated on the decisions that are taken for our health and safety. Image

Around the world, we are seeing examples of how we can live and thrive even as we work towards a cure or vaccine for #COVID19.

Today, we take further steps in easing some restrictions on public gatherings, and other decisions as we adjust to this reality. Image
Religion is a source of hope and light for many and we recognise its role in shaping our society.

Today, we announce the resumption of religious activities at 40% capacity for mosques and churches from June 19 and June 21 respectively with face masks and other precautions. Image
Our religious leaders must lead by example and put the safety of lives first.

The reopening is limited to only obligatory services and with a 'No face mask, No entry' policy throughout the duration of the services. Vigils and other extra-religious activities remain prohibited. Image

As the commercial centre of the country, we are offering incentives to businesses that employ large number of people to avoid job loss.

In our plan to re-open the economy, businesses will follow our Register-to-Open guidelines with protocols that workplaces must put in place.
This and more are some of the things I spoke about earlier today as a panelist in a webinar discussion organised by @FSDHAssetMgt where I gave a frontline account of how Lagos has worked to combat the #COVID19 pandemic and how we are now working to open up the economy.
We are caught between managing hunger & sustaining an economy that is not only dependent on commercial activities in Lagos alone but also in other states.

We are at the stage where we have to balance public health safety & the economy that affects the wellbeing of the people.

Dear Lagosians,

As we prepare to open more businesses and other sectors of our economy, I will like to announce the soon to be launched Register-to-Open initiative.
The Register-to-Open initiative will be monitored by @safety_lasg and @LasepaInfo to assess the readiness of businesses in the identified sectors for supervised operations.
We are at a level where we are reviewing other arms of the economy. We want these businesses to begin to tune themselves to the realities of #COVID19 with respect to how their spaces need to look to reopen with a strict process for monitoring and space management.

And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men. Acts24v16

I have an amazing life.😁

Two consecutive administrations and their numerous allies ever finding a common ground against one woman because she demands Public Accountability from those that govern.

Couldn’t wish for a more Purposeful Life!

Will never stop praising God for this!
There shall come a time in this Land, when many more Citizens will rise up and stare down at those that poorly govern our country.

When that time comes, all we bear today would be so well-worth it, because no society can have Good Governance without “paying a price for Liberty”.

We are at a critical point in the management of the #COVID19 pandemic in our state and every resident needs to #TakeResponsibility for their health and wellbeing.
As citizens, we have a great burden upon us, to behave responsibly. These times demand a lot from us, in terms of actions and behaviours that may not be comfortable. It is difficult to adjust to the changes, but adjust, we must.
As a government elected to uphold the security of its citizens, which includes health security, we will not hesitate to review the terms of #EasingTheLockdown if we do not see an improvement in the adherence to our public health guidelines over the next couple of days.

So i think a great deal of Nigerians still don't get the essence of the facemask and social distancing measures prescribed for COVID-19 fight.

I was in a shuttle bus and i was quietly observing how people pull up their facial masks and then remove...
..remove it right before and after a police checkpoint. Some were even complaining about how the @PoliceNG officers are disturbing their peace 😪

Oh i was not happy to see the trend. So i have decided henceforth to do my bit in enforcing the use of facemask

So once i enter a public place i will quietly announce....please wear a face mask, I am a health worker!!! 😂🤣

The effect it had on the first trial was hilarious. In silence, everyone will #TakeResponsibility

@dimeji81, @a_flirx, @yobolus, @ibilolatiwo What line will you use?

I am glad to announce that six of our patients, all health workers, have twice tested negative and are ready for discharge today. We give glory to God Almighty for this feat and we sincerely commend our frontline workers who made this possible.
Our remaining patients are all stable and in high spirits, and we pray God Almighty to grant us success in the management of the cases.

It’s important to note that infection rate is still very high across the country and, as such, we can’t afford to let down our guards.
For this reason, effective from tomorrow, Monday May 4, there will be statewide curfew between 6p.m. and 6.a.m. until further notice. This is part of the agreements of the Northern Governors Forum to prevent non-essential and unauthorised movement that could spike infection rate.

No nation is sufficiently prepared for this pandemic but we all have to do what we can to fight it while we continue to improve on what we have everyday. This is exactly what we are doing in Kwara. We have successfully converted our hajj camp into a 600-bed isolation centre... ImageImageImage
That is apart from the 10-bed ultra modern, fully-equipped Intensive Care Unit of the Kwara State Infectious Disease Centre (IDC) that our administration had recently built to manage patients in advanced stage of COVID-19 and...
another 60-bed extension of our isolation centre at the Sobi Specialist Hospital, Alagbado, Ilorin. We have also started the erection of such facility in Offa local government. #TakeResponsibility #CollectiveHealth
