The coronavirus pandemic is causing great fear in many parts of the world as countries have been shut down and religious and social gatherings have been suspended indefinitely.
Despite the great concern the virus is causing in other parts of the world, the Nigerian government seems to be taking things with levity despite the increasing number of cases that are being publicised as the days go by.
In a post shared on Twitter, Nollywood actress, Beverly Naya, expressed her concern on the subject and on how the Nigerian government seems to be lax on the issue.
The film star said that living in dream land with not help us deal with the issue and that everyone should be on their toes to successfully protect themselves and their loved ones.
She wrote: “The sooner we realise that living in Lala land is not what will protect us, the better for everyone. Everyone needs to be on their toes so people can take this pandemic seriously! The more information we have, the better prepared we’ll be to protect ourselves and our loved ones.”

Tweeting further, Beverly reacted to a post by Amara Nwankpa who said that the government needs to step up and declare work free days so as to encourage everyone to stay at home.
Beverly replied by wondering about low-income earners and how they would survive if they are not allowed to work.
She wrote: “Who will support the low-income earners while at home? How can they possibly be convinced that staying at home could save their lives when hunger and poverty give them stress on a daily basis. They will definitely be needing financial assistance, I hope FG realises this.”
