He disclosed that it has killed many people in the thousands in China where it originated, in America, in Europe and all over the world.
“Many people in Nigeria mainly in Lagos and Abuja and numerous other States now have it and two people have unfortunately died from the disease so far. It is highly infectious and transmissible which means it moves from one person to another very fast via contact with cough droplets, body fluids or close contact with COVID 19 sufferer. Yet there is also no way of knowing who has COVID 19 as it does not show on the face.,” Taiga stated.

Even the Western World (Europe and America) which we in this part of the world look up to for solutions to most puzzles are themselves challenged in this matter.
“And so, the cure for now is Prevention, Containment and Care. Our Government is not sleeping. Steps are being taken to make people stay at home and apart from one another to stem the spread of the disease. This is called Lock Down. It means markets, hotels, churches, mosques, offices, parties, celebrations, marriages, funerals and any gathering of any sort, even transportation should be Shut Down.
“It is Operation No Movement Or Operation Stay At Home. In other words, Government is asking us to Stay Safe In Our Homes Until Otherwise Directed.
