The Lagos State Government has stopped the reopening of worship centers initially scheduled for Friday, June 19 (mosques) and Sunday, June 21 (churches).

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced the decision at a press briefing on Tuesday.

According to him, the development became necessary as a result of the rising cases of COVID-19 in the state.

On Monday, Nigeria recorded 573 new coronavirus infections, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 16,658.

As has become normal, Lagos reported the highest figures with 216 new cases, bringing the total number of cases in the state to 7,319.

Consequently, the state has remained the epicentre of infections in the country, closely followed by the FCT with 1,264 and Kano state with 1,158.
