Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sabwo-Olu has shared pictures of the disinfecting equipment which will be used in the battle against COVID-19 in the state.

In a statement issued on social media, Sanwo-Olu stated that the disinfecting equipment will be distributed "to as many locations as possible within our state for disinfection and sterilization of all public spaces and surfaces"

The need for the equipment became necessary as the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 increased to 28 in Lagos State.

The statement issued reads: "We would continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic that is gradually seeping into our state.

"We would not relent in our efforts and we will not rest on our oars as we combat this disease.

"All hands will continuously be on deck until we are at zero new infections and ultimately zero transmission.

"We are aware that to totally rid our state of this scourge, all our public spaces must be disinfected, fumigated and sterilized.

"Therefore, we are deploying more of the disinfecting equipment to as many locations as possible within our state for disinfection and sterilization of all public spaces and surfaces.

"Aggressive times call for aggressive measures, therefore we will aggressively tackle this novel coronavirus and bring its catastrophic reign to a complete end".
