What is your advice to Nigerians in terms of how to Avoid and Treat Coronavirus?
It should be taken seriously and not with panic. Follow all the advisory of WHO and NCDC. The lockdown should be respected by all. Our religious leaders need to be more positive with the messages they communicate so as to avoid stigmatization of people who are already positive.
People should know more of the symptoms and where they can’t get help should first isolate themselves. Our healthcare workers need to be protected and not unduly exposed at this moment. Hospital visits should be regulated at this point.
Let us practice love for humanity right now and not allow greed to consume us. People should not make merchandise of supplies meant to relief individuals in this situation. Most importantly, communication is very key. The media will determine whether or not and how we will win this battle.
