The coronavirus pandemic has no doubt kept the whole world on its feet as it is easily spread and there is no known cure for it yet.
The World Health Organisation and other health organisations has tried to sensitize the public on how to help curb the spread of the virus and their advice included good personal hygiene as well as the practice of social distancing.
Despite that, quite a number of Nigerians still appear to be going about their daily business like there is no crisis on our hands. However, some organisations have taken steps on their own hands to curb the spread of coronavirus and to also enforce social distancing.
The president of the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN), Bolaji Amusan, popularly known as Mr Latin, has addressed the general public as well as Nollywood actors on the coronavirus pandemic.
In a video shared on social media via his Instagram page, Mr Latin said that their job as movie makers makes it near impossible for them to practice social distancing because there is a lot of contact on set.
Amusan then said that as from March 27 to April 17, there would be no more filming of movies. He also said that anyone who disobeys the directive would be kicked out of TAMPAN.
