LASG kicking off MaskUpLagos, producing 3m face masks
Lagos State government says it is kicking off its MaskUpLagos; the COMPULSORY wearing of face masks in Lagos.
The governor, Babajide Sanwo- Olu disclosed this in a series of tweets on Sunday.
According to him, Face masks, combined with frequent hand washing, being conscious about NOT touching our face as well as #SocialDistancing are effective in slowing the spread of coronavirus.
Dear Lagosians, even as we observe the lockdown, we are kicking off #MaskUpLagos; the COMPULSORY wearing of face masks in Lagos.
“The state government is currently producing about 3 million facemasks for distribution to the vulnerable.
“Face masks help to protect us from droplets and secretions from coughing, sneezing etc as not everyone that is infected will show symptoms”.
“N95 and surgical masks help our medical workers stay safe while cloth masks made to specifications that will be
combined with other guidelines will help protect our residents from #COVID-19”.
He however noted that the virus is in our communities and urged Lagos residents to take it seriously.
