|Travel / Lagos Like Ghost Town On Palm Sunday & Day 6 Of Corona Virus Lock Down by drivinginlagos: 9:32pm On Apr 05|
It is day 6 of the total lock down on Lagos State, the most impacted state across Nigeria with 115 cases. This day also happens to be a day celebrated in Christianity as Palm Sunday, however the roads are largely deserted with the city looking like a ghost town.
I had a quick drive around Ikeja on day 6 of the total lock down and observed that the empty streets showed how low key Christian Lagosians marked the event. Unlike previous observations, no place of worship no worshippers were seen on the streets of the city.

|Travel / How Lagos Roads Looked Like On Day 4 Of Corona Virus Lock Down by drivinginlagos: 11:23pm On Apr 03|
Using a 7" rearview mirror/dash camera over a few days, I chronicled activities on the roads across several areas of Lagos as the Corona Virus cases increased by 1,000%.
After the Presidential Speech by His Excellency President Muhamadu Buhari on March 29 the Federal Government activated a 1926 law (1926 Quarantine Act) to impose a total lock on most impacted areas across Nigeria in order to stem the further spread of the n-CoViD-19. Lagos State was the most impacted across Nigeria and was most hit by the lockdown
I had a quick drive around Ikeja on day 4 of the total lock down to observe how Lagosians are coping with the full lock down.

I believe there are standard measures taken against such just as there are standard measures for disposing medical waste.
|Travel / How Lagos Roads Looked Like As The Corona Virus Cases Grew By 500% In 10 Days by drivinginlagos: 2:39pm On Mar 31|
Using a 7" rearview mirror/dash camera over a few days, I chronicled activities on the roads across several areas of Lagos as the Corona Virus cases increased from 27 cases to the current 135 cases in a space of ten (10) days.
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had pleaded with religious leaders, a few days after I started documenting by driving around Lagos Roads, to limit congregating during Jumat & Sunday services to 50 persons. He later limited same to 20 persons.
Several organisations not considered essential services started asking their staff to work from home and many Lagos residents started exercising measures to limit the spread of the virus by wearing face masks, wearing gloves, spraying sanitisers and more, still the number of cases kept rising as a good number of Lagosians refused to pay any heed to the existence of the virus claiming that it was a means for government officials to siphon funds.
|Travel / Lagos Residents Refuse To Be Locked Down To Stop Spread Of Covid-19 by drivinginlagos: 6:07pm On Mar 26|
Despite the partial lock down by the Lagos State Government (LASG) requesting or suggesting that Lagos residents stay indoors for a period of seven (7) days beginning today, Thursday 26th March 2020, while non-essential stores are to remain closed, a good number of Lagos residents and traders remained defiant and came out today.
Perhaps interpreting Gov Sanwo-Olu's directive about the lock down as being partial, a good number of residents were seen moving around without the protection of face/nose masks or gloves.
It is yet to be seen if this partial lock-down will stem the spread of the virus across the state, currently with the highest number of infected individuals (30) out of a total of 51 cases.
