The reduction in the positive cases of coronavirus patients in Nigeria as stated daily by the NCDC does not mean that there is no more cases of the pandemic in the country.
A senior health official attached to the Oyin Akoko Health Centre in Akoko Northwest local government of Ondo State, Mrs Modupe Olowoyeye stated this in a chat with The Hope.
Olowoyeye said Nigerians must continue to uphold and follow all the laid down protocols to curb the spread of the deadly disease.
She condemned the lukewarm and non charlatan attitudes of the people in the rural areas, saying this is worrisome.
According to her, many were still saying that corona virus is not real and they attend social engagements, worship centres, political rallies without social distancing, usage of nose masks, and the use of sanitizer.
The health official warned pregnant women and nursing mothers against going to clinics without following COVID-19 protocols.
She commended the efforts of Ondo state government and the Centre for Disease Control in having daily data of incidents of corona virus.
Olowoyeye however counselled people with symptoms of coronavirus to report at government health facilities available in all political wards of Ondo state.
