For the past few days the spread of Covid- 19 also known as Coronavirus has really caused a scare to lots people especially in Nigeria.
Nigeria reported its first case of Covid- 19 few weeks ago and reported the third case yesterday but instead the Federal government has asked Senior citizens and those with existing underlying medical conditions to stay at home.
Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, speaking at a press briefing, Ehanire said
“It is important to note that many people who are infected with coronavirus will experience only mild symptoms and recover without incident. Of great concern are those with existing underlying medical conditions and senior citizens, who are known to be more vulnerable. We strongly advise these citizens to stay more at home. Al Nigerians are required to continue taking necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families.”
The Minister said the Presidential taskforce on Coronavirus will meet later to decide on the issue of travel restriction.
President Buhari has advised government officials not to travel outside the country which got a lot of people talking.
The way Ghana and other countries reacted to their coronavirus cases made a lot of people wonder why Nigeria hasn’t taken any serious action on the disease especially closing of borders. We hope for a very faster action from the government.
