He stated that it is wise to display caution and avoid danger in accordance with scriptural counsel.

If you have no business going out, stay at home, it is scriptural and I will undertone this with a quotation for Proverbs 14:16 where the bible says the Wise are cautious and avoid danger, fools plonks ahead with reckless confidence. And I see a lot of Christians exhibiting reckless confidence and the Bible describes them as fools,” he said.

He urged church leaders to teach their members the dangers posed by COVID-19 and how they can avoid contracting the disease.

Meanwhile, Lagos state has remained the epicentre of the deadly coronavirus in Nigeria with over 11,000 confirmed cases as at Saturday, July 4.

Giving an update on the COVID-19 situation in the state, Akin Abayomi, commissioner for health, said more than 2000 persons who have been confirmed positive are yet to turn up for admission at isolation centres.

According to him, they are avoiding the isolation centre due to either fear of stigmatisation or preference for home care treatments.

He said as at July 3, 42,348 COVID-19 tests had been conducted in Lagos, out of which 10,926 turned out positive.

Out of that number, 1,695 patients have fully recovered and have since been discharged from Lagos care centres. "6,259 of the cases monitored in communities by #COVID19Lagos response team have either fully recovered or positively responding to treatments," he added.
