The Lagos government says the consistent decrease in COVID-19 cases indicates the end of the pandemic’s fourth wave in the state.

In December, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor, announced that the state was experiencing a fourth wave of the COVID pandemic.

Sanwo-Olu had blamed the fourth wave on the refusal of residents to adhere to the safety protocol.

Giving a situation update via Twitter on Saturday, Akin Abayomi, the state commissioner for health, said there is a reduction in positivity rates — from 29.3 percent recorded on December 21, 2021, to 1.9 percent as of January 20, 2022.

The commissioner said 46 new infections were recently confirmed, increasing the number of COVID-19 infections in the state to 98,284.

He added that 1,023, 203 sample tests had been conducted since the inception of the pandemic in the state.
