The Lagos State Commissioner of Health,
Prof. Akin Abayomi, made this known.
He made revealed this on Friday, May 8.
According to him, with the current trend, the coronavirus situation in Lagos is expected to reach its peak by the above stated period.
He was speaking during a media briefing on the update of COVID-19 in the state, held in Alausa, Ikeja.
He says the state is yet to reach the virus peak, which will likely be around July and August.
