Highlights Of Sanwo-olu's Press Briefing On COVID-19 This Evening by semasir: 7:11pm On Apr 20, 2020
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, while addressing the public  on the pandemic in the state this evening has said that cases of COVID-19 has increased because the state have ramped up testing for the virus.

Sanwo-Olu also said it is dangerous to lie about your travel history or contact history to healthcare workers.

He then advised that members of the society should desist from stigmatization when it comes to people infected with COVID-19.

Other highlights from the press briefing includes:

- Lagos State is in the process of reviewing applications from private hospitals who want to be able to treat COVID-19 cases.

- From next week, the state is going to be making face masks compulsory.

- On security, the situation has improved considerably in the past couple of days. Various criminals, up to 150, have been picked up and are being prosecuted.

- On Ramadan, obey the laws of the land and note that any gathering of people numbering above 25 is not acceptable.

Responding to questions from the press, Mr. Governor noted the following:

- On the hazard allowance for health workers which a reporter, Dayo, said was pegged at ₦5000, Mr. Governor noted it as fake news and urged the reporter to make investigative journalism as there are now plans to increase allowance for this month; the least person he said earns as low as ₦20,000.

- Reacting to the response that the hospital First Cardiology Consultant, FCC, Ikoyi denied having the late Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari despite the Commissioner for Health confirming it, Mr. Governor reacted that the wrong person probably answered the question based on how the journalist asked. He however noted that the hospital was duly accredited even before the arrival of the late Chief of Staff.

- People who lied about their travel history will be apprehended and prosecuted as the government is working on 3-4 names and will be published and made scapegoats.

Ganduje aka Gandollar please come and address kano too...

Buhari should come and learn how to engage and address the nation by providing feedback and answers to questions from journalists. Not just reading a lengthy prepared numbered speech after appeal from Nigerians demanding for presidential address.

We shall survive this tough time, by the grace of almighty God.

Remember to assist one or two people who need help around you with no matter how little it is.

No matter how bad it is in Nigeria, Lagos will still have one of the best governor in the country. He too might be the reactive type and not the proactive (which is a general syndrome in this part of the world), but he's still one of the best in crises management based on Nigerian standard.
