The Lagos State Government has commenced plans to establish makeshift isolation centres that would be closer to the people according to reports.
This idea followed the announcement of more confirmed cases of COVID-19 with fears that the figures might skyrocket in coming days. It was gathered that the state Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu mulled the idea of makeshift isolation centres on Tuesday but did not provide more details.
However, checks around the city showed that work was ongoing at the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium former Onikan Stadium with tents being mounted on the pitch.
It is reported that the Onikan centre might be ready for use in few days time, while more would be put in areas like Badagry, Ikorodu, Epe and Ikeja.
