COVID-19 is still with us, Kwara Govt cautions residents

Date: 2020-11-30

Kwara State Government on Sunday cautioned residents of the state against continuous violations of COVID-19 safety protocols, warning that infection rate could spike beyond control unless the rules are respected.

"The last few days have seen sudden rise in our infection rates while more deaths have been recorded. On Sunday morning, the state recorded another death, taking its casualties to 30, while some other serious cases are being managed. More cases are being recorded. The time to stop being complacent is now," spokesman of the COVID-19 Committee and chief press Secretary to the Governor Rafiu Ajakaye said in a statement.

"The government appeals to Kwarans to avoid crowded places, use their face masks while in public space, sneeze into their elbows, and wash their hands with soap constantly.

"Even as the Yuletide approaches, the government urges citizens to kindly note that COVID-19 is still with us and we must avoid anything that may trigger public health emergency in the state."

As of Sunday afternoon, Kwara State has recorded 1112 confirmed cases, out of which 1,054 have been discharged after getting well.

There are fears of a second wave of the pandemic in Nigeria after some lull in the rate of infections.
