The Lagos State Government has announced that 119 people have tested positive for coronavirus during a house to house search of about 118,000 households in Lagos.
Speaking at a media briefing in the state, Prof Akin Abayomi said about
118,000 households have been reached and they are looking for typical symptoms of Covid-19.

“We’ve embarked on an active case search in communities. The idea is to go to hot spots and go from door to door with our health personnel. So far, in the last two days, we’ve visited 118,000 households and we’re looking for the typical symptoms of COVID-19. We’ve identified about 119 people who have the symptoms that are suggestive of COVID-19.

“But let me remind you that COVID is one of the viruses that can cause respiratory symptoms. There are many viruses. So, the idea is to take samples from these 119 and analyse them and that would give us an idea of how much COVID-19 activity is happening in the communities,” he said.
