Nigerians Advised To Observe Protective Measures As Covid-19 Resurfaces –

The National Obstetric Fistula Centre, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State Capital, has urged hospital communities to adhere to personal protective measures as COVID-19 Pandemic hit back.

In a memo dated August 22, 2023, and addressed to the hospital community, the Head of Clinical Services, Dr. E.N Yakubu, said Covid-19 is back and deadlier than in 2019.

He advised against hugging and encouraged people to wear double facemasks.

The memo reads in part: “This strain does not live in the nasopharyngeal region. Now it directly affects the lungs, which means that the “windows” periods are shorter. There have been several patients without fever, without pain, but who report mild chest pneumonia on their X-rays.

“Nasal swab tests are very often negative for COVID-19, and there are more and more false negative results from nasopharyngeal tests. This means that the virus spreads and spreads directly to the lungs, causing acute respiratory stress caused by viral pneumonia.

“This explains why it has become sharp, more virulent, and deadly. Please, be extremely careful. Avoid crowded places, keep 1.5 distance even in open places, double face masks, and wash your hands often (and when you cough or sneeze).

“Please no hugs, it is very dangerous at the moment, as almost everyone is asymptomatic. This “wave” is much more deadly than the first, so we have to be VERY careful and take every kind of precaution.

“Do not keep this information to yourself; share it as much as you can, especially with your friends.”
