Recall that Lagos state is the worst hit in Nigeria by the deadly pandemic that had continued unabated in the country.

So due to increased number of infected persons, health officers were overstressed in duties. This development was one of reasons the government deemed it fit to employ more health workers.

The pandemic had also forced the government to implement lockdown on the state before it was being relieved in parts. The situation caused economic downtones to the residents that even when the lockdown was lifted, people did not bother about the pandemic but about survival.

Lagosians trooped out in large numbers in violation of orders that only people with necessities to go out should be seen outside.

This development made government of the state considered whether to reintroduce another lockdown to forestall rapid spread of the disease but which government had not implemented till the present.
