The World Health Organisation (WHO) has outlined ways to prevent oneself from coronavirus.
According to the information on their website, people infected with COVID-19 usually experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others.
The organisation urged the public not to fret, as the outbreak can be contained. It is advised to take care of one’s personal hygiene, maintain social distance, practise respiratory exercises, and to report any suspected victims to the nearest authorities.
The Federal Ministry of Health, through Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, has urged citizens not to abuse social media and indulge in spreading misinformation that causes fear and panic. The ministry also asked that NCDC toll-free number 0800-970000-10 which is available day and night, be contacted for guidance.
