The Agege Local Government Area of Lagos State has designated Salvation Army School, Dopemu, as Isolation centre as a proactive measure to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the community.

Mr Ganiyu Egunjobi, the council Chairman, made this known on Wednesday while sensitising the market traders, religious and community leaders on the danger of further spread of the pandemic.

“We have earmarked Salvation Army School, Dopemu, as Agege Isolation Centre, in adherence to the state government’s directive.

“The last few months will go down in infamy as one of the periods the human race was under threat by the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic, which is claiming lives across the globe per second per second.

“ln Nigeria, the casualty may currently be low, but we must not be deceived. The reality is that we are in for a tough time.

“We must scale up our personal hygiene and environmental sanitation to stand any chance of winning this battle against this dreadful disease.

“It also behooves us to maintain adequate social distancing and adhere to the government’s directives in order to combat this disease of biblical proportion,” Egunjobi said.

According to him, as government, it is our resolution to do our bit by sensitising the public on the pandemic and ensure strict enforcement of environmental regulation to contain the spread of the virus.

Egunjobi, however, advised the residents to maintain personal and environmental hygiene to curb the spread of the pandemic in the state.

“In case of any emergency bordering on the pandemic, either in the form of a sick person exhibiting symptoms of the disease or a gathering beyond 25 people, I urge residents to call the following phone numbers.

“The numbers are: (Phone/Email) , (Phone/Email) , (Phone/Email) , (Phone/Email) and (Phone/Email) .

“In our bid to continue to promote social distancing, we implore persons who want to have anything with the council to call these lines: (Phone/Email) , (Phone/Email) , (Phone/Email) & (Phone/Email) for enquiries and correspondence.
