Abstract

The profundity into the rising realities of new urban planning that unbundles the fragility of declining and weak concepts of conventional planning cannot be overemphasized in this COVID-19 era. Therefore, the emerging paths for a post-COVID-19 city rest on the ability of urban planning to be resilient in times of pandemics. This paper discusses the COVID-19 pandemic experience in Ogun State, Nigeria and the imperatives for physical planning. The study relied on secondary data sources (journal articles, newspaper publications, government reports, and blogs)and direct observation (primary data source). Findings suggest that the disease is prevalent in informal settlements and COVID-19 exacerbates several shocks in the state. The study makes a case for a new approach to physical planning that calls for the vigorous pursuit of resilience and the preparation of a resilience strategy to guide future city planning.
