Lagos will only see decline in number of COVID19 patients in four to six month time - Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi


The Lagos State Commissioner of Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi has just revealed that Lagos State will only begin to see a major decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases in the next 4 to 6 months to come.

The commissioner revealed this information when he was speaking at the Ministerial Press briefing in honor of the one year in office anniversary of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on May 27th.

He also revealed that it is very much impossible as of now to predict when the COVID-19 pandemic will end and that when the state will reach its peak is also dependent on the records from the outbreak.

He added that the state has also been watching what has been happening around the world and trying to use the records of others to be able to reach to some kind of pattern, a modelling that will show when we will reach our peak and when the outbreak’s end can be predicted.

And he believes that a period of 4 to 6 months is enough to be able to see a significant decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases that is recorded in Lagos. 

He assumes that by that time so many people would have been gotten a good knowledge of the virus and so there will be a less opportunity for them to virus to spread because they would have gotten immune to the virus and this according to him would signify the end of the COVID-19.

Meanwhile in Nigeria, Lagos state has continued to be the Epicenter of COVID-19 as it has already confirmed 4012 cases of the virus in the state.
