Lagos launches COVID-19 website

In order to educate and enlighten all residents of the State with up-to-date information on coronavirus pandemic the Lagos State Government has designed and launched a dedicated COVID-19 website.

According to a statement issued on Thursday 9th of April, 2020 by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Innovation and Technology, Mr. Olatunbosun Alake, the website: https://covid19.lagosstate.gov.ng will provide instant access to vital information on the COVID-19 as part of efforts of the government to contain the spread of the deadly virus in Lagos.
Alake explained further that the website is an avenue to curtail the spread of fake news and provide members of the public with facts and figures provided by the Ministry of Health and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on COVID-19.

“The website has detailed information with a breakdown of the local governments where the patients (are) admitted at our Infectious Disease Hospital, Yaba, reside,” Alake stated.

The Special Adviser outlined details available on the website including the latest news and information on Coronavirus; total number of cases, recoveries and fatalities in Lagos and Nigeria; details on symptoms; safety tips and statistical breakdown of cases in the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas of Lagos.
