As Nigeria battles to contain the first case of coronavirus detected in the country, the country’s governors have urged the populace to self-quarantine if they notice symptoms. Nigerians were also urged to report to nearby medical facilities if possible.
This was contained in a statement issued by its Chairman and Governor of Ekiti, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
The APC second term governor said; “As a forum of proactive Governors, we have initiated monitoring infrastructure in all states to ensure that quick response and attention is given to anyone showing symptoms of the disease.
“We encourage the citizens to self-quarantine if they notice symptoms related to the viral disease and contact the nearest health facility within their states.
“We will deploy all resources available to respond and contain further spread of the virus. “We enjoin citizens not to spread fake news and misinformation that can trigger fear, panic and chaos.
“The Federal Ministry of Health and other designated Federal and State agencies will provide the relevant updates related to the disease.”
