As the Nigerian government keeps making efforts and taking safety measures to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, Lagos has recorded a decline in the number of cases.
As a result of this, the state has closed down some COVID-19 isolation centres. The Eti-Osa facility was shut and another one in Lekki.
The Agidingbi isolation centre will also be shut and the patients relocated to a large capacity Centre in Anthony area, which will be soon commissioned.
This was disclosed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at Lagos House, Marina, during the 17th update on the management of coronavirus in the state.

However, the tent built at IDH premises by Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) will still function strictly for the management of cases of COVID-19.
This is why we concluded to shut Eti-Osa facility and another one in Lekki.”
In the coming days, the Governor said the opening hours for food and non-food markets may be extended to 5pm on their opening days.
