Some Nigerians on social media have reacted to the sudden increase in the number of coronavirus cases in Lagos State.
The Nigeria Center for Disease Control on Sunday announced that 86 new cases of coronavirus infection have been reported in the country and out of the 86, Lagos recorded 70 cases which is the highest so far in the cases recorded in the State.
Some Nigerians who were shocked, took to their social media pages to lament.
While some expressed displeasure in the number of cases confirmed, others wondered how long it would take before the lockdown order would elapse.
Here are some comments gathered from social media.
