Lagos State Commissioner For Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde has unvield  preventive measures that commuters and transport workers should imbibe to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Dr Oladeinde stated that these measures became important because of the records of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the country.


Henceforth it is compulsory for all transport operators to sanitise their parks and garages, at least before and after each trip.


All transport operators/companies should wash hand equipment with soap and running water. Alcohol-based sanitisers should be available for use by the drivers, conductors and passengers.
