The regent, Barr Yemi Bajowa, noted that scourge is not a thing to be trifled with as some people once joked with at the onset of the disease in Nigeria; that it could not affect Africans. She said the best ways to avoid contracting the virus are by indulging in social distancing, using the face mask and to keep a relative distance from anyone who coughs or sneezes regularly.
She commended the Ondo state government for ordering a 14 day stay at home, adding that self-isolation in this novel coronavirus period is a measure to keep everybody safe.
She, however, prayed that the gods of the land shall cleanse the land of strange pestilences.
