Coronavirus: Tiwa Savage speaks on border closure
Top Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has cried out over the government’s continued decision to leave Nigeria’s borders open amidst coronavirus pandemic.
This is coming after Nigeria confirmed the third case of coronavirus in Lagos. Recall that the Lagos State Ministry of Health, which confirmed the case, said the patient is unconnected with the index case.
The infected, a 30-year-old Nigerian female who returned from the United Kingdom on Friday, observed self-isolation, developed symptoms and tested positive.
Sharing on Instastories, Tiwa Savage wrote: “Why are we not closing our borders before it gets too worse”.
“I understand we can’t stop citizens from returning but we can test and possibly isolate for 14 days instead of running the risk of letting it spread in the community”.
