Coronavirus: Ogun set to reopen economy June 1 – Governor

Dapo Abiodun, who is the executive governor of Ogun State, has stated that the state is going to ease the lockdown imposed to curb coronavirus and will reopen its economy by June 1.

He made this known in an address yesterday, which is the last day of the one-week extension earlier declared.

According to the governor, the window gives room for the conduct of essential business activities “and has been acclaimed to have positive mental benefits.”

He also explained that Ogun State has experienced the highest increase in the number of cases in the last one week but also discharged many patients.

He further made an announcement of the 25 per cent increase in the testing capacity.

“We will be observing the lockdown on Monday 25th May, 2020, Wednesday 27th, and Friday 29th between 7am (morning) and 5pm (evening).

“As we prepare for full business operations and further ease of the lockdown which will commence on 1st June, 2020, we have adopted the “See and Treat” protocol, where symptomatic patients would start receiving treatment even before results are out.”

He promised the commencement of the third phase of the relief package distribution over the weekend, to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 restrictions.
