The Lagos State Government has ordered all unit heads of the abattoirs in the state to sensitise their members to measures of preventing the spread of coronavirus in the state.

The state Commissioner for Agriculture, Gbolahan Lawal, noted that the state government had adopted several measures to prevent the spread of the disease through the facilities.

According to him, the ban of any gathering that involved more than 20 people would be enforced at the abattoirs and slaughter houses in the state, adding that hand sanitizers and distance thermometer would be provided at the entrance of the facilities.

He said, “It is important for all unit heads and stakeholders of abattoirs in the state to sensitive all the butchers in their respective abattoirs to the dangers and preventable measures of the novel COVID-19 and the need for sick members to stay away from the abattoirs and seek medical assistance.

“Posters and handbills on COVID-19 shall be made available at all our abattoirs and meat markets emphasizing the symptoms of the disease, the preventive measures to be taken and the phone numbers to contact in cases of suspected outbreak. It is also important that we increase the level of sanitation of the entire environment at our abattoirs and slaughter houses in the state.

“All butchers and food vendors should be fully kitted and maintain a high level of personal hygiene by regular washing of hands and a member of the management of each concessionaire who is fully kitted should be stationed at the entrance to ensure the use of hand held thermometer on individuals coming into the abattoir and the mandatory use of hand sanitizer.
