Nigeria don dey get di highest number of coronavirus cases for West Africa. Di kontri don record over 8,000 confirmed cases and more dan 200 deaths since di virus first show face for Nigeria in February 2020.
Di Nigerian government bin do plenty to try contain di spread of Covid-19, including closing down schools and businesses, banning public gatherings and introducing a curfew. But even with all dis efforts, many Nigerians still no dey follow di rules wey dem put in place to protect dia health.
As part of its strategy to fight against the virus, the Nigerian government has been encouraging people to practice social distancing by staying at home as much as possible. This is especially important because it helps reduce contact between individuals who may be carrying the virus without knowing it yet or showing any symptoms. It also reduces the risk that those who are already infected will pass on their infection to others before they can receive medical treatment or self-isolate themselves from other people in order to prevent further transmission of the disease.
The government has also been providing information about how best to protect oneself from contracting Covid-19 through various media outlets such as television broadcasts and radio programs which have been airing regularly throughout Nigeria since March 2020 when lockdown measures were first introduced across the country. These messages include advice on washing hands frequently with soap and water; avoiding close contact with anyone displaying symptoms; wearing a face mask when out in public; maintaining good hygiene practices at home; avoiding large crowds; keeping up physical distancing measures where possible; getting tested if you think you may have contracted Covid-19; seeking medical attention immediately if you experience any symptoms associated with Covid-19 such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing etc.; and finally following all local guidelines issued by your state’s Ministry of Health regarding quarantine periods after testing positive for Covid-19 or having come into contact with someone who has tested positive for it etc..
Despite these efforts however there are still many Nigerians who are not taking proper precautions against catching this deadly virus due either ignorance or negligence towards safety protocols set out by authorities . As a result , some areas within Nigeria have seen an increase in infections despite earlier containment strategies being implemented . To help combat this , several initiatives have recently been launched both nationally & locally aimed at educating citizens about how best they can protect themselves & others around them from contracting COVID – 19 . For example , The Federal Government recently announced plans for a nationwide campaign called “Stay Safe” which aims to raise awareness among citizens about preventive measures they should take while going outside during this pandemic period . Additionally , several states within Nigeria have started running campaigns focusing specifically on their own regions so that locals can better understand what steps need taken in order keep safe & healthy during these difficult times .
In conclusion , although there is still much work needed done before we see an end this pandemic situation here in Nigeria , it is clear that authorities are doing everything within their power ensure everyone remains safe & well informed about ways they can stay protected from COVID – 19 . With continued support from both citizens & governments alike hopefully soon enough we will be able see our nation return back normalcy once again !
