Many among the 36 state governors across the country have refused to self-isolate despite contacts they had with prominent people that have tested positive to the coronavirus, our correspondents report.
Though some of the governors have declared that they have gone into self-isolation, checks by Daily Trust revealed that even among those that did not self-isolate, some performed public functions within and outside the government houses yesterday.
Considering their level of exposure in the last few days, it was learnt that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) had written to all the governors to self-isolate after undergoing test for COVID-19 as a precautionary measure.
They were also advised to direct those they had contact with, including their commissioners, close aides and family members to self-isolate to stem the spread of the disease.
