It is not news again that the corona virus pandemic (COVID-19) is now spreading wide in Nigeria. There are presently 36 cases of COVID-19 in the country and Lagos State has the highest number with a record of one death so far.

Dr. Wale Akeredolu, Medical Officer Of Health and Mr Gbolahan Agbaje, Head Environmental services department, addressed the gathering after following all the necessary precaution such as washing of hands, use of hand sanitizers and social distancing. In addition, making sure that the gathering is not more that the required number as advised by state government.

Hon. Emmanuel Bamigboye, Executive Chairman Mushin Local Government, informed the gathering that health workers will go to the community to educate and sensitize residents about coronavirus and how to reduce the pandemic in Mushin, Lagos, Nigeria. In addition, banners, posters, and flyers will be distributed to educate residents more on ways to curb the health challenges in the local government.

Mushin recorded a case at Takuro Street, Idi-Araba, Mushin, and the affected person now at IDH, Yaba for proper medication and treatment.

The virus spreads very fast if proper hygiene is lacking. There is need to take proper precaution when going out or else, stay at home.

We thank Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwooolu, for the compulsory stay at home 14 days leave for civil servants of grade level 1 - 12 and closure of schools, churches, mosques, borders, air space, etc for effective containment of the virus.

The symptoms are runny nose, headache, sore throat, fever, cough, and feeling of being unwell.

The virus is transmitted through the air by coughing and sneezing; close contacts by touching and shaking hands; and touching an object/surfaces contaminated with the virus then touching ones nose, eyes and mouth without prior washing of the hands.

The following are the best practices to avoid contacting the virus:

1. Wash hand properly,
2. Use hand sanitizers,
3. Practice social distancing,
4. Stay at home if no urgent or important event to attend
5. Self Isolate
6. Avoid gathering of more than 20 people
7. Do not attend church or mosque services. Religious bodies should obey federal and state government decisions of no gathering of more than 20 people.
8. Break the chain by staying at home,
9. Cover mouth when coughing and sneezing, etc.

We need to contain the spread of the virus therefore citizens should obey all the directives of the government.

Taskforce is now out to check defaulters who disobey the directive of the state and federal government.

Whenever COVID-19 symptoms are noticed, the affected person should seek medical attention but should call the following numbers first for more information: 08023169485, 08033565529, and 08052817243. Health is wealth.

Korede Fadimiluyi, Supervisor for Health, Alhaji Shekoni, Alhaji Okwuobi, Elder Femi Okuyemi, Chairman's aides, and others.
