Anambra State Government has advised citizens of the state to curtail their travel to China for now, until the Coronavirus pandemic has been arrested.
A statement by the State Information & Public Enlightenment Commissioner, Chief C. Don Adinuba, reminded the people of Anambra that Covid-19 has become a clear and present danger to the international community, including Anambra State.
The advisory became necessary because citizens of Anambra easily qualify as “the most travelled Nigerians, if not Africans.”
He advised Anambra entrepreneurs and travelers who have been to Wuhan in central China in the past three weeks “to make use of our remedial measures by reporting to the Ministry of Health, Awka.
“Our screening facilities are available free-of-charge for all who feel somewhat endangered by the new highly contagious disease.”
The State also advised that everyone who travels abroad should “maintain high hygienic standards by, among other things, washing their hands regularly.
“They should, in addition, maintain minimum physical contact with people they meet.
The safety and comfort of every Anambra person, whether at home or abroad, will remain on the priority list of the Governor Willie Obiano administration.
