- Nigerians are spreading coronavirus as a result of their carefree attitude according to an expert
- According to Ajiboye, many Nigerians refuse to adhere to safety guidelines
- The expert, however, urged the FG to enforce the rules strictly
Nigerians have been accused of spreading coronavirus because of their carefree nature. The allegation was made by a Pharmacist, Abiodun Ajibade, on Sunday, August 2.
According to him, this is the reason for the spike in cases of COVID-19.
Ajibade, the chairman, Pharmacxutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), Oyo state Chapter, made this known in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Going further, he called on the federal government to be serious in the enforcement of the use of face masks.
According to him, this is the only way the spread of the disease can be contained.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that as the Nigerian government keeps making efforts and taking safety measures to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country, Lagos has recorded a decline in the number of cases.
As a result of this, the state has closed down some COVID-19 isolation centres.
The Eti-Osa facility was shut and another one in Lekki. The Agidingbi isolation centre will also be shut and the patients relocated to a large capacity Centre in Anthony area, which will be soon commissioned.
This was disclosed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at Lagos House, Marina, during the 17th update on the management of coronavirus in the state.
According to him, the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH) in Yaba will revert to its status as a care centre to cater to all forms of infectious diseases.
However, the tent built at IDH premises by Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID) will still function strictly for the management of cases of COVID-19.
