He said that as the commercial and industrial nerve centre of the state, Warri is visited daily by different shades of people for sundry reasons, including medical purpose, hence the need for people living in Warri South to give the COVID – 19 fight the seriousness it deserves.
Tidi, stressed the need for practising Coronavirus preventive measures such as personal hygiene, compulsory use of clean face masks, continuous washing of hands with soap and running water, application of hand sanitizers, maintaining social/ physical distancing as well as eating food that boosts the body immunity.
