A pilot working with Air Peace has refused to let passengers disembark in Kano state after flying them from Lagos over a suspected case of coronavirus.

Legit.ng previously reported that Mary Wilson, a female lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Allied Sciences at the Koforidua Technical University has shared easy, efficient and cheaper ways of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the lecturer, recent research has proven that COVID-19 can only live up to 15 minutes when subjected to temperatures of about 56 degrees Celsius.
Wilson also noted that the doctors who helped fight against the SARS virus are recommending that people use hand-dryers in preventing or managing COVID-19.
She reiterated that COVID-19 lie beneath the nose, where the sinuses are and in the throat for a couple of days before they go into the lungs to infect sufferers.
Wilson revealed that one could kill trapped COVID-19 in the nose using steam or hot bath, and also recommended that people could perform the sauna bath, twice in a day for 20 minutes to prevent or eliminate the virus from plaguing their system.
She said, however, the average Ghanaian may find it hard to afford the sauna bath which costs GHC30,000 (N1,959,074).
