Essentially, every Nigerian should be practicing social distancing as World Health Organization recommended the guidelines as a measure to contain the deadly virus.
President Muhammadu Buhari, during his Nationwide broadcast to Nigerians on New year’s day, urged all Nigerians to keep the country safe from a resurgent cycle of COVID-19.
He, therefore, urged all Nigerians to observe strict Covid 19 prevention protocols.
Meanwhile, as of time of filing this report, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control NCDC recorded 576 new cases of coronavirus, bringing the total number to 89, 163 confirmed cases.
