Professor Akin Abayomi
, Lagos state Commissioner for Health, has said the state will begin to see a significant decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in four to six months.

The Commissioner disclosed this on Wednesday while speaking at the 2020 Ministerial Press Briefing in commemoration of One-Year Anniversary of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s assumption of office.

He said;

It is difficult to predict the end of COVID-19. When we are going to see our peak in figures is also dependent on the profile of the outbreak.

We are watching what is happening across the world and using the pattern of outbreak in different environments to try and reach some kind of modelling pattern.

So we will use this pattern to figure out when we are going to peak and when we are going to see the end of the outbreak.

Professor Abayomi explained that;

We believe that a period of four to six months is a reasonable period by which we should start to see a significant decline in the number of COVID-19 cases that we pick up in Lagos.

By that stage, many people would have been exposed to the virus and therefore the virus will have less of an opportunity to infect people, because they would have developed some degree of immunity to the virus and that would signify the end of COVID-19.

As at press time, 8,733 COVID-19 cases have been recorded in Nigeria, of which Lagos State account for 4,013 cases – the state with the highest toll in the country.
