Coronavirus: Edo asks residents to report overseas returnees

The Edo State Government has urged residents to report persons who recently returned to the state from overseas to relevant health authorities through the emergency help lines to curtail the spread of coronavirus in the state.

In a statement, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, said it became necessary for residents to report returnee friends and family members to safeguard the health and safety of other residents following the rise in cases of COVID-19 in Edo State.

He said, “We are appealing to residents to provide information on their neighbours and family members who recently returned from overseas to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.

“We must also continue to observe the government’s guidelines against the spread of coronavirus which include the work-at-home order for civil servants, closure of social gatherings of persons above 20 and markets, excluding those trading in essential commodities and imposed stringent guidelines for transporters and hoteliers.”
