Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State says worship centres in the state will be allowed to reopen.

The spread of novel Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) in Nigeria continues to rise as the latest statistics provided by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control reveal Nigeria now has 11,166 confirmed cases. On the 3rd of June 2020, 348 new confirmed cases and 1 death were recorded in Nigeria.

To date, 11166 cases have been confirmed, 3329 cases have been discharged and 315 deaths have been recorded in 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory having carried out 69,801 tests.

The governor during his address on Thursday at the Government House, Marina said mosques are to reopen from June 19 while churches are to begin services from June 21.

Last week, President Muhammadu Buhari said the measures had imposed “a very heavy economic cost”.

The lockdown began five weeks ago to contain the spread of coronavirus.

As many in the big cities live a hand-to-mouth existence, the restrictions led to fears that it could leave people hungry as it cut off their means to earn money.
