Meanwhile, the NCDC has warned that bringing down face mask to the chin could result in contamination, urging Nigerians to “always use your masks properly or remove completely when necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

The health agency also stated that with the ease of inter-State travels, it was critical for Nigerians to adhere to preventive measures, appealing to everyone to take actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as well as protect the vulnerable and older population.

According to the NCDC, “COVID-19 spreads easily even by those showing no symptoms. If you are showing symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, self-isolate and call your state hotline to get tested. Take responsibility to prevent the spread, protect your loved ones and those around you.”
