Ekiti Govt Warns Against Flouting of Social Distancing Rule
Ekiti State Government has frowned at the noncompliance of the people to social distancing rule for prevention of the spread of Covid-19.
The Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr Mojisola Yahaya-Kolade during a press briefing in Ado Ekiti.
Dr Yahaya-Kolade who stressed that distancing from each other was part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 among the people in communities, said failure to comply would compel the government to impose another total lockdown in the state.
The commissioner said anyone whose temperature exceeds thirty eight degree Celsius would require the attention of the Nigeria Centre for Diseases Control, NCDC, to know the health condition of such a fellow.
Speaking on Security, the Commissioner for Environment, Mr Gbenga Agbeyo said the Ekiti State Taskforce on COVID-19 would be monitoring the activities in the banking institutions, Okada Riders, Commercial Drivers, among others to ensure that people comply with government’s directives.
He said henceforth, anyone caught to be flouting government’s order would be prosecuted, irrespective of status.
