The coronavirus pandemic is getting more real as every second goes by seeing as people are starting to realise that they are not invisible and that they can also contract the virus.
Nigerians were initially relaxed about the coronavirus pandemic but all that has changed now that people have seen that even influential people as well as politicians have tested positive for the virus.
Just recently, reports made the rounds that a popular Nigerian celebrity who attended the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA), might have contracted the disease.
Well, the Lagos state commissioner of health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, has alerted the public that people who attended the event should self-isolate because an attendee has already tested positive.
In reaction to the news, Nigerian celebrity couple, Banky W and Adesua Etomi, have said that they had been self-isolating even before the government’s directive to do so.
Banky wrote: “Mrs W and were already self-isolating since last week.. and here's the thing... everyone else who attended the AMVCA's should already have been doing the same. This threat is real. Don't wait until you know an infected person before you take it seriously. Please.”
Adesua tweeted: “To all of us who attended the AMVCA - please let's stay indoors. I'm begging you. Let's be responsible. Edakun. Bubba and I have been indoors for a few days now but it's imperative that we ALL adhere to the call to self-isolate. Let's not unknowingly put others at risk.”
