The Lagos State Government has said all its facilities have been placed on high alert, to ensure a third wave of COVID-19 does not happen in the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, said this in a statement on Monday.

According to Abayomi, it was important to be proactive, after they flattened the curve of the second wave.

He warned that a trigger for a third wave was likely to be importation of new COVID-19 strains from inbound travelers.

“Currently, countries like India, Brazil, Argentina, Iraq, Qatar, Peru and Uruguay are being ravaged by a vicious third or fourth wave following a less active and insignificant second or third wave.

“The latest wave in India has been proven to be as a result of new mutant strains that have resulted in a dramatic increase in sickness and death for two weeks running.

“Whilst we commiserate with countries like these, it is important that we protect our environment and residents against this virus.

“Especially as we have only less than one per cent of our population that have received their first dose of the Oxford Astra-Zeneca COVID-19 vaccine similar to India that have about eight per cent,” Abayomi said.
