Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will go into self-isolation immediately, after one of his close aides tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday.
Sanwo-Olu and other members of his team will be tested by the Lagos State biobank on Friday but will remain in isolation until the results of the tests are available.
“We are seeing slightly increasing number of Covid-19 positive cases in clusters in Lagos and all Lagosians should adhere to the prescribed advisories of safe distancing, good hand and respiratory hygiene and avoidance of unnecessary gatherings,” Comission for Health Akin Abayomi said.
According to Abayomi, this is not the first time the Lagos Governor will be taking a Covid-19 test.
“He has had at least three since May when he announced that 10 of his aides had tested positive for the virus,” Abayomi said.
