FEAR OF Coronavirus: Sanwo-olu greets Lagos state deputy governor with leg

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos state governor, on Sunday, performed a “leg shake” with Obafemi Hamzat, his deputy, during their visit to the Infectious Disease Hospital amid coronavirus fears.

More than 83,774 people have been infected; 2,867 have so far died from the coronavirus, with Nigeria having reported its first case of the ailment after an Italian citizen tested positive in Lagos.

The patient was immediately quarantined at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba. It was reported that he had attempted to escape after complaining of excessive heat and mosquitoes, in a development that stirred up a wave of criticism as regards healthcare standards.

On Saturday, Akin Abayomi, the Lagos commissioner of health, disclosed that the Italian had been moved to a renovated facility, prompting the governor’s trip thereto for inspection.
