The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said 135 persons have died so far in the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the State.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this on Monday during a media briefing.

On July 11, the Governor had warned Lagosians about a third wave, following a spike in the number of Coronavirus cases recorded in the state.

On August 2, the federal government declared that Nigeria was experiencing a third wave of infections.

Speaking at the briefing on Monday, Sanwo-Olu said since the start of the pandemic, 5,551 positive cases have been admitted at COVID isolation centres in Lagos.

“Over the course of managing the COVID-19 pandemic, about 5,551 patients have been admitted into our various COVID-19 care centres in Lagos, with 506 registered fatalities. Of these deaths, 135 have sadly, happened in this current third wave.

“I commiserate with all residents who have lost loved ones to the pandemic. We share in your pain and grief. As a society and as a government, it is for us to redouble our efforts to defeat this devastating pandemic,” he said.

The governor said the state has seen a surge in severe cases, adding that the number of oxygen cylinders used rose from 75 per day to 400 within the third wave.
