”Local transmission of coronavirus is increasing in Lagos” – Commissioner of Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi
Lagos state health commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi has said the rate of local transmission of Coronavirus is increasing in the state.
The commissioner who disclosed this at a press conference on Monday April 6, said 82 percent of the total COVID-19 cases were imported into the country as at week 4. However in the following week, 45 percent of novel Coronavirus patients had no travel history – which suggests that local transmission is increasing.
“At the end of week 4, 82% of the patients imported the disease from abroad while 18% had no travel history.
“By the end of week 5, 45% of the patients have no travel history. This shows that the importation is decreasing and local transmission is increasing.”
