Chairman, House Committee on the Environment, Lagos State Assembly Desmond Elliot has taken the coronavirus campaign to his Surulere constituency with support from some Nollywood stars.
The campaign powered by Elliot was headed by top movie producer and director, Chico Ejiro, featuring the likes of Zack Orji, Paul Obazele, Segun Arinze, Angela Phillips, Torino, and Obi Osotule among others, to distribute flyers and sanitizers to Surulere residents at different locations.
The campaign tagged: ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) Public Advisory’ with the hashtag; ‘LagosAgainstCoronaVirus’ advised the general public to ‘monitor yourself closely and diligently during the self -quarantine, to identify if you develop symptoms including but not limited to the following, cough, fever, shortness of breath, feeling of being ill, headache and diarrhea.”
According to Chico Ejiro, “This sensitisation is very necessary because such pandemic needs constant reassurance that all is not as bad as it seems.
“We are reminding them of what to do to stay alive. It is a big burden on Hon. Desmond Elliot.
“He wants the best for his people and at times like this, he is expected to do what he is doing as he has always done.
“So, we are telling the people not to forget to wash their hands, use hand sanitizers, they should try as much as they can to avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth, avoid contact with sick persons, cover a cough or sneeze, keep their distances and stay alive.”
