Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, yesterday, hinted that the state government, was thinking of locking down the state in January, amidst the resurgence of Covid-19 in the state in the wake of a second wave.

This came as 22 out of 86 patients at the various isolation and treatment centres in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, are reported to be in critical conditions and currently placed on oxygen.

In Lagos, the state government sealed no fewer than 12 facilities for breaching Covid-19 safety protocols in line with the ban on operations of night clubs as part of measures to curtail the spread of the coronavirus, while the state threatened to bring the full weight of the law to bear on all those flouting the directive.
