Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has gone into self-isolation, the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi revealed on Friday.
He revealed this in a statement titled, ‘Sanwo-Olu goes into self-isolation.’
According to him, one of the close aides to the governor had tested positive for coronavirus the previous day, which warranted the governor to self-isolate.
The Commissioner was, however, silent on the COVID-19 status of the governor, stating that he had been tested for COVID-19 for at least three times.
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.”
