When it was announced that there was going to be a state wide lockdown in order for the government to work fervently with health institutions to contain the CoVid-19 pandemic in Lagos state, It almost seemed like an impossible adjustment until it was eventually enforced.
The lock down has now been effective for two days straight and it looks like residents have no choice than to correspond for health and safety reasons.
It is no different in Ikorodu, as every residents has been indoors and adapting to the changes with hope for positive news in a very short period of time.
This is the actual reality of the Elepe-Ijede region of Ikorodu which reminds us closely about the same equivalent atmosphere of the community during the 2019 election periods.
The streets and avenues are scantily empty though few youths emerge during the early hours of the day to play football while there are also few sellers of essential commodities.
Even banks are open for collection of money and small transactions but not too many people are seen around the institutions.
It has been recorded that we now have a total of 139 cases of infected persons and 2 deaths Nigeria with Lagos at the top of the chart, It is only wise for all residents to follow instructions and adhere to the regulations in order to fight and effectively combat the CoVid-19 pandemic.
It should be noted that the NCDC has decided to work towards increasing their testing capacity to 1,500 persons per day which will help reduce the level of tension growing in the state.
With over 820,000 infected persons worldwide and more than 42,000 deaths recorded soo far, Health Organisations considers CoVid-19 a bigger threat to Humanity than World War 2.
