Coronavirus: NOA Sensitizes Market Men And Women In Ibadan
Considering the high volume of economic activities operating at market places and motor parks, the Oyo State National Orientation Agency, (NOA), has taken its sensitization campaign against Coronavirus to some markets within Ibadan metropolis.
The sensitization rally which kicked-off from Oke-Padi to Ogunpa market and ended at Dugbe market, afforded traders the opportunity to be informed of proper hygiene as well as causes, symptoms and measures at preventing the spread of Coronavirus.
While addressing newsmen after the one on one sensitization, State Director, NOA, Mrs. Dolapo Dosunmu, said the campaign against Coronavirus became necessary after the epidemic hit over 100 countries with Nigeria inclusive.
Mrs. Dosunmu, however, advised political office holders, traditional and religious leaders to champion the campaign against Coronavirus epidemic in their localities.
The NOA boss who advised the traders to wash their hands regularly, avoid over crowed places as well as close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illnesses, appealed to them to extend such campaign to their homes, neighborhood and environment.
According to World Health Organization, (WHO), confirmed cases of Coronavirus have risen to 130,000 with more than 4,700 deaths reported across the world
