The coronavirus pandemic is becoming a horror story in many parts of the world, particularly in African countries where their healthcare systems are next to zero and the high and mighty who used to go abroad for treatment can no longer do so because most airports are already on lockdown.
The pandemic used to seem like news that was very far away from our reality but that story is gradually changing seeing as even popular personalities and Nigerian politicians have already contracted the virus.
Just recently, the Lagos state health commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi, took to social media to alert guests who attended the Africa Magic Viewers Award (AMVCA) after one of the fellow attendees tested positive for the coronavirus.
Abayomi advised that guests at the event should self-isolate at home and this has led to a series of reactions from popular personalities.
BBNaija 2019 winner, Mercy Eke, who was also present at the event and even won the award for best dressed, has taken to social media to speak on the pandemic.
Mercy said that she is taking the issue very seriously and that everyone should play their part to save the country.
She wrote: “Already taking this seriously, our health is wealth let's all do our best to save our country."

This news was confirmed on Tuesday, March 24, by Mukhtar Gidado, the senior special assistant Governor Mohammed on media.
This is coming shortly after it was learnt that President Buhari's Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, also tested positive for the virus.
Kyari who returned from Germany on March 14, did not self isolate as NCDC directed and attended a meeting on Saturday, March 21, in Aso rock on containing the virus where he began to cough repeatedly and thereafter surrendered himself for testing. He has now gone into self-isolation for treatment.
