    For at least some days each week,it is advisable that any state that has not locked down during the day should be mandated to do so by having a time table of when to go out during the day each week and when to fully stay at home as it is being done in Ogun State.This is a sacrifice we need now so as not to regret in each state in the end and as a country.
