Nigerian Govs Agree On 2 Week Interstate Lockdown To Curb Spread Of Coronavirus In Nigeria..

The 36 state governors in Nigeria have recommended a two-week national inter-state lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the country.






This decision was taken during a meeting of the governors on Wednesday, a day after the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control confirmed 117 new coronavirus cases in the country with total infections rising to 782.

Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, said the inter-state lockdown would help halt the continued rise in the number of cases as well as the spread of the pandemic.

According to him, the governors also resolved to set up COVID-19 committees at the regional level to be headed by health commissioners.

The news comes a day after Governor Fayemi said the governors were very concerned about the spread of the disease and warned that the country was in for a long ride in the battle against the pandemic.

Fayemi had on Tuesday spoken about the efforts of state governors in curbing the spread of COVID-19, during a skype interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.

“We are very concerned. If you look at the number of times we met over the last one month. We’ve had five meetings which focused almost exclusively on COVID-19 and its spread and the concomitant economic effects on the Nigerian citizens,” Governor Fayemi had said when asked about the situation.

He, however, said the governors were trying to use all their capacity to fight the pandemic.

To complement the actions of the government, he called on Nigerians to play their part and follow directives and protocols.

“I don’t think we have reached the peak yet. So, Nigerians need to take this very seriously. This is not entertainment,” he warned.

  2. This is needed but no support in any form from the government.
    I have not had any sales since this lockdown started, no more savings because I had to spend from there to feed.... This whole issue is becoming frustrating 😩😩😩
    Dear Lord, please this should come to an end soon.

  3. In as much as I believe this pandemic is real, it's also important to note that not every fever or high body temperature is a possible case of a carrier. I read how someone was said to be a carrier whereas she wasn't all because she was feverish. I also want to believe that most of the discharged people we see on daily basis, some may not be positive in the real sense of it.

    5. You are right. There are so many other illnesses that can cause fever and other classical symptoms of COVID-19. Which is why there is always a lab test to confirm. No one is taken into those isolation facilities without a confirm lab test.

      In the other hand, so many people with COVID-19 have no symptoms. Not even a slight fever and they stay that way till their test turn negative after weeks. That is just how the disease is. If symptoms is all we are looking out for, then we would not have close to the number of cases we have now. And these people who have no symptoms go on to infect others as it it.

      Hence the emphasis on physical distancing, stay at home and use masks if in public as there is no way to tell who has the virus without testing. And testing is a problem globally (high demand and limited supply of quality kits).

      A lot is really unknown about this COVID-19.

  4. Infected persons are asymptomatic,what's the point in continuous lockdown?why didn't they lock the whole states down when Lagos Abuja and Ogun did theirs?secondly,they aren't aggressive in testing people at all,is it due to the fact that they do not have enough testing kits or what. Lagos alone has about 24 million people living in it,how many have they tested?I am really as confused as this clueless government.

  8. This is a good move. But despite the lock down! Market is filled up! Roads are filled up. God help us please.

  9. You guys should not allow what Melinda Gates prophecy come to pass. It’s not a matter of coming out. Ask, is it safe to do so now? You decided to quarantine at less than 50 infected person in the state, now we have about 500 infections in Lagos alone. It’s now we want to come out...ok!

  10. I am just worried about the economic implications of this lockdown.

  11. The total lockdown is important, in order to curb this virus. Looking inwardly, our police force and security agents on our roads has no nose mask, hand gloves and usually doesnt maintain social distance. They come so close to the car to ask questions. I believe they should be properly trained. Lord help us all

    1. This has got me thinking too. I treat them like armed robbers now. I will just zoom off once I noticed that the person approaching me is not protected.

  12. Lockdown, lockin...whatever grammar, there is no testing in the states that claiming no cases, more testing should be done because the truth there are more unconfirmed cases in all the states. Lagos is trying but more testing need to be done, Ogun State is lagging and need to more community search especially from Mowe axis down to Berger.
    My prayers are with the medical personnels in Nigeria, May God protect us all and see us through.

  14. I cry for my country .there is nothing like lockdown ,they are just deciving themselves , Edo state is still very much open .
    Even the market they gave the sellers to start using is even worst , no social distance at all .
    People are going out , people are outside their shops selling .
    I think Edo state governor should do something about that market place or he should just let everyone out and stop deciving himself.

  15. Delta state has been on lockdown for more than 3 weeks, now an additional 2 weeks. Its like starvation to death sentenced on some persons. Besides don't see the point cos movement is still on, even interstate travel. My neighbour just came in from abuja a few days ago. Lockdown that security operatives are using to enrich themselves??
    Between, I still don't get why delta state has been on lockdown and why patients are not being discharged, it now seems like the govt is trying to hustle cos I don't get

    1. Madam its interstate lockdown..meaning that your neighbour who just came in from abuja won't be able to do so again..they don't want people travelling upandan,thereby risking states who hasn't recorded any case yet. The lockdown isn't a stay at home lockdown but a no travel lockdown

    2. @Anything Naija please, it's *By the way* (Btw) not "Between".

      Maybe it was a typographical error on your part or the predictive text is activated on your phone .

  16. Even if they lockdown for our sake, people still travel. We have very stubborn and daring Nigerians.
    The military Manning the borders are the CLOG. Bus owners are tripling bus fare bcos those animals at the border points will take their own share and allow them to go spread the virus to people that jejely stayed in their houses.
    Don't accept anyone into your homes. Let everyone nyansh down one place abeg.
