A clergyman, Isaac Idahosa has begged the Federal Government to convert all isolation centres in Nigeria into hospitals immediately the fight against the coronavirus pandemic is won.
He disclosed this while advising Nigerians to avoid spreading fake news that can create fear in the minds of the people amid the lockdown.
According to him, the government should not relent on its efforts to strengthen Nigeria’s health sector after the pandemic has been defeated and sanity is restored.
He added that the citizens must not stop observing the social distancing in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
His words, “There is need for us to convert all the isolation centres into hospitals where disease outbreak will be treated in the country. We should not collapse the structure because we may not know what will happen tomorrow. The government should strengthen our health sector and other related sectors aimed at eradicating health hazards in the country.”
It is not only worse than the coronavirus pandemic, but it creates fear in the minds of the people. We must cross-check the information at our disposal before spreading it, else we will be creating fear in the minds of the people.The church should also unite while observing the social distancing and pray that God should put an end to the spread of the virus.”
“You can say that you are blessed and it’s not reflecting on other people. The reason we’re blessed, is for us to become a source of blessing to other people. We have a mandate to replicate the goodness of God in the lives of other people.
“This is a very crucial time for us as a people. The COVID-19 lockdown is on, and there’s even an extension now. We are aware of the plight of some people, who do not have what to eat. What we did was that we fed people today(Easter Sunday) as our act of giving. As the saying goes, charity begins at home.”
