COVID-19: Always wear your masks, NCDC urges #EndSARS proTesters

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has warned #EndSARS protesters to be cautious of the risk of contracting COVID-19 infection.

The agency urged the protesters to always put on their face masks.

The Director-General of NCDC, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, gave the warning on Thursday at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 media briefing in Abuja.

He explained that the protesters’ voice would still be heard despite wearing a mask.

Ihekweazu said, “The number of new cases we will have will be determined by our own behaviour and the circumstances that we find ourselves.

“So, right now we are reopening schools; schools by definition means you are going to have more people in confined spaces.

“We have published guidelines together with the Federal Ministry of Education to mitigate those risks. How effectively they are implemented will mean if there will be more transmission or less.

“You can see some of the demonstrations happening across the country. The virus doesn’t know whether you are young or old, policeman or a demonstrator; it uses the opportunity to jump from persons to persons.

“So, we will continue to advise everyone, wherever you are, to continue to wear mask, you can still have your voice heard if you are wearing a mask.”
