Nigerian Celebs Self-Isolate During COVID-19

If anyone can make the best of social distancing and self-quarantine, it would be celebs.

Several Nigerian celebrities are now in self-isolation. This came after the Government announced that they might have come in contact with a person that tested positive for coronavirus at the 2020 Africa Movie Viewers’ Choice (AMVCA); that held at the Eko Hotels & Suites on Sunday, March 14, 2020. The directive to self-isolate during COVID-19 came from the Lagos State Ministry of Health.

Self-Isolate During COVID-19: Nigeria’s First Daughter Is Not Left Out

One of Nigeria’s first daughters, who recently returned from the U.K., is in self-isolation because of the coronavirus, according to the country’s first lady.

“Earlier today my daughter returned from the UK being among the high burden listed countries of COVID-19,” Aisha Buhari tweeted without naming the daughter. “Based on the advice of the Hon. Minister Of Health, Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19 and that of [Nigeria Centre for Disease Control], she is on self-isolation, not because she displayed any symptoms of the COVID-19.”

“Please I urge all parents to do the same if possible as prevention is better than cure,” she added.

The first lady also announced she closed her office as a preventive measure.

“Similarly, I have shut down my office for two weeks with immediate effect while essential staff can work from home as a result of some staff who recently returned from the UK,” she tweeted.

The actions follow Nigeria’s first death from the virus that was confirmed on Wednesday.
