The commissioner for health in Lagos state, Akin Abayomi has noted that the number of COVID-19 cases in the state may explode to 120,000 between July and August, 2020.
“Just a month ago, on April 7, we saw 10 cases per day. Two weeks later it was 32, then 70 cases. We are now seeing above 100 cases per day. This shows our graph is moving in a gentle incline upwards,” he had said, showing a pattern that is now seen on the national aggregate.
As predicted by the Cable, If Lagos state were to record 120,000 cases by July-August as stated by the commissioner, the entire country will probably peak at over 300,000 at about the same time.
