The Health Commissioner in Lagos State, Professor Akin Abayomi, has said the state has past the height of the Coronavirus pandemic and is now in the flattening period.
Abayomi, who is reportedly fighting the infectious disease, said this in a Wednesday, August 26 interview with Nigeria Info FM.

The first case of the viral disease was recorded in February at Lagos and in Nigeria, Lagos remained the epicenter of the disease.

In his radio interview this morning Abayomi said the world had passed the worst of the pandemic from the government’s findings.

”Lagos might be at its peak in the #COVID19 pandemic but it’s not over yet as we may see an escalation of positive cases.

However, until we see a decline in number of positives cases we shouldn’t relent.

We believe the lockdown was not effective because of the reality of a city where people go out to fend for themselves on a daily basis. If not you replace a health crisis with an economic crisis.

Concerning the number of positive results seen this period, we have sample collection centers in every local government in Lagos, so the more we test the more cases we find.

If there are no more positivity then the outbreak is slowing down.

So our observation is that Lagos have past the worst of the pandemic, it has past the peak of the pandemic and is now on the flattening stage and over time will experience a down slope of the virus then the end of #COVID19.

There are two categories of testing, ‘the need to know’ for people who have shown symptoms and are a public health concern and ‘the want to know’ – those who as a result of business want to get back to work and want to know if they are safe.” he said
