The coronavirus pandemic has become a great cause for concern for many people in different parts of the world. Despite that, some people are still not well informed about the disease and they feel like it is either non-existent or not harmful.
A few people on the other hand, especially in Nigeria, are nonchalant about it as they carry the mind-set that all humans will eventually die.
Well, despite the different opinions people have about the disease, it is definitely something to be concerned about seeing as some countries have shut down as a result of it while some social and religious gatherings have been banned until further notice.
A number of Nollywood actors who are based abroad, have taken initiative to enlighten their fans on coronavirus and the great danger it poses to the lives of many.
The Yourba-speaking actors who do not reside in the country told fans to listen to government officials and stay at home. They also advised on the importance of washing their hands as well as using alcohol-based sanitizers.
One of the actresses in the video also addressed the misconception some people had at the initial stage that blacks do not die from the virus. She said that black people have also lost their lives to it.
Some of the film stars featured in the video include; Tunde Owokoniran, Toyin Adewale, Doris Simeon, Tawa Ajisefini, to name a few.
