Corona Virus: Kaduna sets up Emergency Centre

527

Kaduna State has constituted an Emergency Operational Centre (EOC), following the announcement of the first case of Novel Corona Virus (COVID -19) in Lagos last Thursday, to respond to any eventuality.

A press statement issued by the Ministry for Health on Friday, stated that committee will be chaired by the Commissioner, Dr Amina Mohammed Baloni, adding that it was set up to respond quickly, in the event of an out break of the disease.

It will be recalled that on February 27, 2020, the Federal Ministry of Health had announced that the first case of Novel Corona Virus(COVID-19) has been discovered in Lagos.

The statement further reiterated that the general public should observe preventive measures as advised by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

According to the Ministry of Health, people should ‘’regularly and thoroughly wash hands with soap and water or alcohol based hand sanitisers, maintain at least three to five feet distance between individuals and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.’’

‘’In addition, the general public is also advised to follow good respiratory hygiene by covering the mouth and nose with a handkerchief or tissue paper, or cough and sneeze into the sleeve at the bent elbow,’’ the statement said.

The Ministry further said that such handkerchiefs or tissue papers should be disposed off immediately after use.

The statement also advised patients who have a history of travel to China, Italy and other countries with confirmed cases of COVID-19, to ‘’ self isolate for two weeks and report any symptoms of fever, cough, sneezing and difficulty in breathing to medical personnel.’’

‘’Above all, residents of Kaduna State are encouraged to remain calm while people with such symptoms are to seek medical attention as the State Government is pooling all resources together to ensure readiness to contain the disease in the event of an outbreak,’’ the commissioner assured.

  1. Hi

    My name is Sergey and I am a co-founder of Sweaty Quid Freelancer Marketplace where you can buy and offer all types of online services varying from back links and guest post to explainer video tutorials, infographics and write-ups for your website.

    I strongly believe that you and dailynewstimeng.com could really benefit from Sweaty Quid, no matter if you wish to provide your services or employ the services of freelancers to assist you to grow your business.

    I have been a freelancer on numerous market places for over 5 years and have had my accounts arbitrarily shut down, my earnings pocketed and I just simply had a hard time with lots of poor quality freelancers. After much disappointment, I made a decision to start my very own freelance market place that would do things in a different way and far better.

    After almost one year of caffeinne powered evenings, myself and my crew at Creative Bear Tech have developed Sweaty Quid from ground up. One month into our launch we have managed to bring in a fantastic variety of quality freelancers and an unbelievably high number of repeat buyers. I feel this serves as a testament to our excellence.

    Sweaty Quid is a spam-free and transparent marketplace for top quality freelancers and buyers. We are rigorously banning all spammy vendors who do not pass our quality threshold and leave only the very best ones. Keeping up with the latest technologcal changes, we also take cryptocurrency as one of our payment methods. Our ethos that defines us is that sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to quality freelancers.

    We are still very new in comparison to other freelance market places, but we are already punching above our weight.

    I would love to welcome you personally to register with Sweaty Quid Freelancer Marketplace!

    Kind regards
