…Vaccine cannot undo years of damage —UN Sec. Gen

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has extended the stay-at- home order for public, servants on levels 14 and below to January 18, 2021 to stem the tide of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Public and private primary and secondary schools in Lagos State are not reopening on January 4, 2021, as earlier announced.

This came as Secretary General of the United Nations, UN, Mr Antonio Guterres condemned what he described as “vaccine nationalism” of the Covid-19 vaccine, stressing that the vaccine itself cannot undo years of damage caused by the virus.

A statement by Lagos State Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola noted that the directive for public servants on levels 14 and below to resume January 18, excludes staff on essential duties as well as first responders, urging all public servants to stay safe and ensure continued adherence to all Covid-19 protocols in order to rid the state of the pandemic.
