LAGOS STATE INFECTIOUS DISEASES (COVID-19) REGULATIONS 2020

PREAMBLE

Whereas, the World Health Organization has designated Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a pandemic spreading rapidly all overall the world with devastating effect.

Whereas, on the 27th day of February,2020, an index patient was identified in Ogun State and brought to Lagos State, to be quarantined and treated.

Whereas, from the 9th day of March, 2020, up until the date hereof, there was a slow rise in number of people testing positive for COVID-19, with a spike in numbers beginning on the 18th Day of March, 2020.

Whereas, in the last 24 hours alone, a large number of people have come up for tests, and both epidemiologists and virologists, have projected that there will be a surge in the number of COVID-19 patients.

Whereas, between the 13th day of March, 2020, and the 21st day of March, 2020, when the Nigerian international airspace was closed to landing of passenger flights into Nigeria, and in particular Murtala Mohammed Airport 1, a number of people flew back to Nigeria from COVID-19 high incidence countries including USA, the UK, Italy and Germany.

Whereas, it has turned out that a number of people returning to Nigeria in the period aforesaid have been exposed to COVID-19 with many not proven to have self-isolated and mingled with other residents of Lagos State.

Whereas, no less than eight million people move around Lagos State every business day in crowded public transport vehicles, in large retail but congested markets.

Whereas, between the 18th day of March, 2020 and the date hereof, I as Governor have made announcements requesting certain measures to contain the  spread of COVID-19.

Whereas, in spite of the measures aforesaid, it is observed that many residents do not respect social distancing suggestions, and have carried on mingling in religious, social and other circles without regard to the high contagion rate of COVID-19.

Whereas the facilities and infrastructure for handing infectious diseases is  severely limited in Lagos State and indeed the whole federation,

Whereas, it has become imperative to go beyond making suggestions and giving directives in order to stem the tide of the spread of COVID-19, save lives, reduce ill health and ensure that the economy in which the people of Lagos State operate does not become weakened and stretched,

Now therefore, I, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, Governor of Lagos State, in the exercise of the plenitude of powers conferred on me in that regard by Lagos State Public Health Law Cap Ch, P16. Laws of Lagos State 2015, and in particular, by Section 8 of the Quarantine Act, Cap 02 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, (having regard to the provisions of Sections 2, 3 and 4 of the Quarantine Act, Cap Q2 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004,) and further pursuant to all other enabling laws and powers in that regard, hereby, (subject to the provisions of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), make the following Regulations for the good order, safety, security and public health of and in Lagos State.
