Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has gone into self-isolation, the state government said on Friday.
Lagos Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known in a statement titled, ‘Sanwo-Olu goes into self-isolation’.
He said one of the close aides to Sanwo-Olu tested positive for coronavirus, necessitating the governor to isolate.
The statement read, “The governor will go into self-isolation immediately, after one of his close aides tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday (10th of December).
“Mr. Governor and other members of his team will be tested by the Lagos State biobank today 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.
“This is not the first time Mr. Governor is having the 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.”
