COVID-19: No Need For Panic Buying, Sanwo-Olu Tells Lagosians

Lagos State Governor, Babjide Sanwo-Olu gives an update on the index case Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) recorded in the state on February 18, 2020.


The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has appealed to Lagosians to avoid panic buying.

He said that only essential things must be bought noting that there is no need to rush into panic buying, following the closure of gatherings in the city.

Governor Sanwo-Olu gave the announcement on Friday while giving updates on the coronavirus outbreak in the state.

“It is not out of place for people not to have essential things at home, there is no need for us to start panic buying,” he said.

According to him, “We have not locked down the city, we have not said people cannot go to work, we have not said people cannot move from one place to the other.

“We have not said that people cannot communicate, what we have said is that people should observe social distancing as much as possible and should desist from the assemblage of people that is more than a certain number that has been prescribed.”

The governor also advised Lagosians to avoid overcrowded buses.

I never liked this guy's style before but I think my opinion is changing the way he's been up and doingn on the Coronavirus issue. People should come first in every thing government does because they're not governing animals.

My concern still goes to the way president Buhari is handling the matter. He didn't even come to the media except once. He keeps speaking through garba shehu and oshiomohle. Who knows if garba shehu was the one who sent himself and baba didn't seem to be aware if it. World presidents allay fears by coming on air to address their people on a regular basis . This isn't good enough as a leader.

Globally, this virus is causing more harm to our social behaviour than to our physical bodies. I think it is time the media houses/social media are clamped down, forcing them to balance out the news by feeding us with useful information that is devoid of gloom and doom or risk being shut down or fined heavily.

If this virus had occurred a decade ago when our social media lives were still at its infancy, this would not have happened. Now, anyone can syntheize a story from the steaming, dark depths of their sick and broken minds and it will be taken as the gospel truth courtesy of the social media.

We all have a responsibility to end this crisis caused by this pathogen, let us remember to hold unto what makes us human to save this race.

Sanwo Olu talking like a dunce:

"Adviced Lagosians to avoid overcrowded buses?" Does this make any sense? How would that work in a city like Lagos? Lagosians have been confined to moving about in buses (which is always "crowded" ) after the ban on okadas and tricycles undecided

I still believe there is a reason this covid-19 spared Africa,. In as much as it is in the continent, no death of an African has be recorded (I stand to be corrected).

If truly this virus is so infectious, where are all those Nigerians who had contact with the Italian?

Truth is, Africa is not prepared for this global pandemic.

Developed countries around the world have acted fast to cushion the effect and resultant suffering faced by its populace. Here in Africa, well, I won't say more.

Not true. Without Trump we would not have known that chloroquine works against Covid-19. Do u realise the Chinese have known this since February but they kept it somewhat hidden, always refering mysteriously to some exotic “malaria medicine”. Only Trump came out and spelt it out, “chloroquine!”

Well said

We should thank nature. For the first time we can be proud of our nasty weather that turns a lot of fresh looking people into dark charcoal like creatures. This is a major factor against local transmission of the virus

Have you noticed that most of our cases are imported? Have you also noticed that of all the contacts the index case had, which would be in hundreds, only one local transmission was recorded to date and even then that one make a quick recovery and may never have known he even had it if not that he was isolated and tested

My take is that the virus would and has met its match in our weather and I do not expect to see the kind of spikes here as seen in Italy and much of the temperate regions

So the governor is right. They have been proactive, frrontally confronted the pandemic and there is absolutely no data to support the need for panic behaviour from the citizens
