As Nigeria battles with the second wave of COVID-19, Osun State government has warned its citizens about the pandemic, noting that this is not the time to let down their guards.
In a statement released by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, the government enjoined its citizens to continue to adhere strictly to safety guidelines.
“The government wishes to reiterate that citizens should not let down their guards just yet, but take personal responsibilities for their safety. COVID-19 is real, and its second wave is gaining traction at an alarming rate.
“Nigeria hit a new daily record on Wednesday, and Osun’s share of the new cases was about 1.4 percent. Also, other states that border Osun recorded new cases.
“The precautions are not burdensome – observe social distancing; avoid crowded places; wash your hands regularly with soap and water; disinfect your hands and surfaces with sanitizers and disinfectants; and wear your nose masks and face shield when out of home.
“Let us desist from actions that sabotage the efforts of the government and put the collective safety of Osun people in jeopardy”, the statement read.
