COVID-19 : Lagos might record 600 cases after testing 3000 samples – Babajide Sanwo-Olu

By  | 

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu, Tuesday, said there are 3,000 samples of suspected coronavirus collected and awaiting testing.

The Governor said the State will be embarking on aggressive testing in community, noting that the Government had collected 3,000 samples that were yet to be tested due to global shortage of reagent used for molecular testing.

He said: “We made order for more reagents. We are hoping that some of the reagents will be supplied Monday and Tuesday.

Once these 3,000 cases are taken care of, you might see up to 600 positive cases, but we are planning and preparing to take care of it. We are improving the capacity of our isolation facilities in preparation to take care of more patients.”
