Buhari sad about coronavirus case in Lagos

President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken for the first time, more than 48 hours after the confirmation of a coronavirus case in Nigeria.

In a statement Sunday night, Buhari expressed sadness about the case, confirmed in the commercial capital, Lagos, despite the ardent efforts of the government regarding preparedness and response measures put in place in our country’s borders and beyond.

President Buhari commended the Federal Ministry of Health and other relevant agencies whose diligence and efficiency enabled the case to be detected, diagnosed and isolated quickly, even while swift measures were taken to identify and follow up on those with whom the index patient came into contact.

The President commended the responses of the Federal Ministry of Health and Governments of Lagos and Ogun States as well as other relevant agencies to the reported incident.

He called for vigilance on the part of all citizens and responsible government agencies.

President Buhari urged Nigerians not to panic about the news of this first case of Covid-19 in our country, as undue alarm would do us more harm than good.

“Instead, Nigerians should strictly observe the advisories disseminated by the Ministry of Health, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the World Health Organisation (WHO), on the best way to prevent infection.

“This information is being broadcast in all available media by the Federal Ministry of Information”, he said.
