The gradual easing of lockdown commenced in Lagos on Monday, leading to thousands of Lagosians trooping out, commuting to different parts of the state.
PREMIUM TIMES observed how the gradual easing was welcomed with zero social distancing by many Lagosians, especially at banks and bus-stops, although, the wearing of face masks in public places was largely adopted.
Lagos residents are beginning to speculate more confirmed cases in the coming weeks, because of defiance of some of the directives of the state government.
