3 “Nigerians need to understand that the virus has altered the way we live and things may never be the same again in the near future.

4 “The virus is probably in every state of the country; though two states are yet to report cases probably due to no testing. So everyone everywhere in Nigeria is at risk,” he said.

5 Eze, however, said that Nigerians should continue to adhere strictly to the guidelines made available by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

6 He urged those who should keep working from home to continue to do so.

7 “People should avoid crowded taxis, buses or places.

8 “Regular hand washing with soap and running water should be sustained. Offices and markets should make hand washing facilities available.

9 “Everyone leaving their homes should use a face mask,” he advised.

10 The expert said that recorded cases in Nigeria were still rising and yet to peak.

11 “I feel schools and religious houses should remain closed. Government should keep providing palliatives especially to the most vulnerable in the society.

12 “Small businesses should be supported to get back on track,” he said.

13 He called on Nigerians to believe and spread only information from official channels in order to avoid misinformation.

14 Eze added that everyone should take personal responsibility and play their parts so as to help end the pandemic.
