Ogun State Government has banned social clubs, cinemas, night clubs and other mass gatherings of people in a bid to halt the spread of the Coronavirus in the state.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the state government, Kunle Somorin on Wednesday, said any gathering that brings either 50 or more people together has been banned for 30 days.

The statement reads: “The safety of our people and their welfare are priorities that cannot be toyed with.

“Further to measures so far taken to ramp up its efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the Ogun State Government has found it expedient to announce the following additional measures:

“Immediate ban of all high-density gatherings that would bring together 50 or more persons in the same place, such as social clubs, halls, cinemas, night clubs, restaurants, cafes, and sports arenas.

“This measure will be in effect for the next 30 days in the first instance.

“The government will continue the surveillance initiatives and intensify sensitization on COVID-19. This is more so given the peculiarity of its location as the Nation’s Gateway State and its industrial capital.

“Our epidemiologists and other health workers are working round the clock with Federal agencies and international development agencies to stop the spread of coronavirus.”

KanyiDaily had also reported that Ogun Government ordered the police to block the gates of areas accommodating a large number of Chinese nationals in the state, over fears of the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
