He said “These patients do not only endanger their lives but the lives of our front line medical personnel, we already have some names and they will be prosecuted duly”.

“We would, therefore, like to appeal to our health workers to raise alarm as soon as they notice anything of sort,” he stated.

Sanwo-Olu also announced that from next week Lagos will begin the enforcement of wearing of face mask in public places.

The governor said one million of locally made face masks have been contracted to tailors and will be distributed during the week.
