The Lagos State Government has indicated that the 14-day lockdown currently being observed in the state may be extended.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu dropped this hint on Saturday during a briefing with journalists.
Sanwo-Olu said a final decision would be taken based on how things unfold in the coming days.
“If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the Coronavirus).
“We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.
“There’s been no backlash on the handling of people by the security operatives so far. I always tell them to ‘wear a human face’.”
There are so far 232 confirmed Coronavirus cases and five recorded deaths in Nigeria.
