COVID-19: Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) Kicks Against Total Shutdown Of Daily Activities, Including Schools

Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) kicks against the total shutdown of daily activities including schools in Nigeria. The NCDC said in is latest COVID-19 advisory guidelines that  COVID-19 situation in Nigeria did not warrant a total shutdown of daily activities including schools.

NCDC advised Nigerians to circulate  NCDC’s public health advisory materials on COVID-19  to all households, schools, children, employees, clients and visitors, churches, public places. NCDC advised that facilities for regular washing hands should be provided at all public places and homes.

However, the fear of COVID-19 grips Nigeria, and government at all levels, including Nigerians are ignoring the NCDC  opinion against the shutdown of daily activities.  Many states have already announced the shutdown of some public places and schools, including Federal Government that announced the shutdown of Unity Schools and federal tertiary institutions on or before March 26, 2020.

Nigerians are awake at fighting the Pandemic in both personal and collective measures. The senate president advised 12 senators that shook hands with Senator Bassey Akpan, a colleague that returned from the UK, now one of the epicentres of COVID-19 to go for test because Senator Bassey Akpan did not observe the statutory 14-day self-isolation before attending plenary on Tuesday. In a piece of related news, President Buhari’s daughter that returned from the UK is on personal isolation. Some churches have suspended activities to stop the spread of the coronavirus

Among the states that have announced the shutdown of some public places includes Lagos, FCT, Anambra, Enugu, among others.

  2. Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks, However I am having troubles with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I can’t join it. Is there anyone else getting similar RSS issues? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanx!!|

  3. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
    theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
