After announcing days ago that public gatherings must not exceed 50 persons, the Lagos State Government has now reviewed the order, limiting all religious and social gatherings to maximum of 20 people.
The state government announced the new decision on its Facebook page on Saturday after the country confirmed 10 new cases of coronavirus.
The government urged residents in the state to adhere to the new directive.
The Federal Ministry of Health had on Saturday confirmed 10 new cases of the coronavirus disease in Nigeria, bringing the total number of cases to 22.
However, the index case and the second case have both been discharged after they tested negative.
All 10 new cases are Nigerian nationals; nine of them travelled to Canada, France, Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom. The 10th case had close contact with a previously confirmed case.
