This Project seeks to explore the social and economic impact of covid-19 in a city like Lagos. Usually, the city is characterised with having tension as there are a lot of people seeking their daily bread on a daily basis. Hence, lots of vehicles and people are usually seen on the streets. However, reverse is the case with the global covid-19 pandemic which has affected a lot of countries, Nigeria not being an exception.

Ever since the first case was recorded in Lagos on the 27th of February, 2020, the virus has gradually spread to some parts of the country with new cases arising almost every day.

As scientists all over the world try to find a cure for the virus, the best way to stop the spread of Covid-19 amongst other preventive methods as advised by experts is by isolation. The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari,  placed a 14 day lockdown and a stay- at -home order on Lagos State, Ogun State and the Federal Capital Territory; Abuja starting from the 30th of March, 2020.
As a result of these, the face of Lagos has changed, socially and economically. My project is looking to expose what a locked down Lagos feels like.
