Following the fear of suspected case of the dreaded coronavirus in Ondo State, Rep. Tajudeen Adefisoye has counselled the constituents of Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency not to dismiss the dangers that the deadly corona virus could pose to human health.
Adefisoye encouraged his constituents and the good people of Ondo State at large to heed the expert advise of regular washing of hands with soap, social distancing and the use of hand sanitizers. He also urged his constituents that cannot afford to buy hand sanitizers to prepare the mixture of lime with the local ‘ogogoro’ drink, which he described as equally effective.
In a similar vein, Adefisoye has urged his constituents to avoid large gatherings of people that are more than 20, pending when a vaccine will be developed for the corona virus which is fast assuming pandemic status across the world.
Also, the lawmaker has counselled his constituents to avoid travels that are not compulsory, particularly inter-state journeys; in order to avoid having body contacts with carriers of the most deadly disease.
However, Adefisoye has appealed to parents in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency to ensure that their children and wards whose schools have been shut on instruction of Ondo State government are kept indoor and not allowed to roam the streets. He added that school children could become vulnerable to the dreaded Covid -19 in the course of roaming the streets where there is large gathering of people.
Meanwhile, in the unlikely event that any constituent of Idanre/Ifedore may be manifesting symptoms that are similar to that of Covid-19, Adefisoye has urged such individual to quickly visit the nearest government or private hospitals for appropriate medical attention.
Likewise, the Deputy Chairman of the House Committee on Army has advised anyone in Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency that may have recently returned from any of the high risk corona virus countries to observe two weeks self isolation. He added that this advice of self isolation has become necessary so as to prevent the outbreak of Covid- 19 disease in Ondo State.
