The Lagos state government has established COVID-19 testing centres across the 20 local government areas (LGAs) in the state.
The state government announced the information via its official Twitter handle, on Sunday.
It said the decision to establish the testing sites across the LGAs is geared towards increasing testing capacity in the state.
The government said the centres are meant for those who fit the case definition of COVID-19.
It added that “visit to these centres is strictly by appointment and it’s not for emergency cases”.
