Lagos oxygen demand hits 360 cylinders per day as covid-19 positive cases increases

Sanwo-Olu reviews curfew, all public schools still remain shut

Lagos State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has raised the alarm over rising COVID-19 positive cases in the wake of the second of the pandemic, saying the oxygen demand by patients in the state-owned isolation facilities had jumped from 70 to 360-litre cylinders per day and projected to hit 750 by end of January, 2021.

Governor Sanwo-Olu also counselled that, in the second wave of the pandemic, any malaria-like symptoms by patients should be considered as COVID-19 infection unless proven otherwise by the test conducted on the patients.

The governor made this known, on Tuesday, while briefing newsmen on the update of COVID-19 situation in the state, held at Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.

This was just as he said that the increase in the positivity of cases had necessitated the provision of greater amounts of concentrated oxygen for the moderate to severe cases on admission in the state isolation centres.
