Ex PDP Delta State Governorship aspirant, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has come out to tell rural dwellers to not confuse the ravaging coronavirus pandemic with malaria.
Sunny recently revealed that the coronavirus is a deadly disease that spread from person to person via contact with a carrier of the virus and people in our rural communities should learn to comply with guidelines from the government during this period.
According to him, all laws on social distancing, especially in designated market places should be obeyed because that is the only way we can contain the spread of the virus in the country.
He added that all hands must be on deck to check the spread of the dreaded disease in the country since our future is at stake.
His words, “More should be done in enlightening rural dwellers, especially in designated market places that COVID-19 is a killer disease and not like our everyday malaria fever that should be taken lightly.
“From all indications, most rural communities have not fully come to terms with the dangers associated with social gathering as a quick and fast way of spreading the virus and that is very worrisome because it portends great danger if measures are not taken to check this negative trend”.
