Coronavirus: Ayo Alaba Idowu, Birdview Group Boss Speaks On Infected UK Returnee by pweedie(f): 4:57am On Mar 18
Infected UK Returnee Has Been Living With Our Staff Since Saturday – Bird View Boss

Ayo Alana Idowu, Bird View Communications President, made a disclosure about the UK returnee who tested positive.

According to him, the infected person has been living with one of their staffs since when she back till yesterday when the result came out

Futhermore, he announced the business operations suspension at their Ikeja branch for 15 days.

He revealed that he took the decision to keep their staff safe and fight the spread of Coronavirus

He wrote on Instagram:

Today, I made a painful, but necessary, decision to suspend operations at our business head quarter in Ikeja for the next 15 days, and subject about 15 employees in the building to Coronavirus test and subsequent government quarantine or self-quarantine. This was after a staff was exposed to a family member that returned from U.K. on Saturday and tested positive to Coronavirus in the early hours of today. The person that tested positive had lived in the same house with our staff member between Saturday and early hours of today. .

Nigerian government reportedly traced the person to the Ogba address in the early hours of today, conducted the test and found out that the person was positive. Our immediate response to the situation was not to discriminate against the staff that was exposed, but to join hands to stop the spread of the global pandemic situation. We are providing all possible supports to keep our people safe and fight COVID-19 together. .

In the meantime, our business will mostly be remote, while our Lekki office will still welcome physical consultations. However, we will be putting up a notice that will advise a set of people, especially those who recently traveled in the last 14 days, to stay away from physical meetings and rather engage remotely or simply visit again after 14 days. .

For me and my family, we just started a much-deserved one-month family vacation in Canada, but are already contemplating either cutting our trip short or staying much longer than planned. The truth is that both options come with their own risks and we have to do thorough assessment of the situation to determine which one has less exposure for us. We are taking COVID-19 very seriously and are doing everything possible to join hands to stop the spread. We also urge you to take it more seriously than you have ever imagined. .

Stay safe and stay healthy. .

AAI.

Update on our COVID-19 Response:

In the wake of the notice received by our HR unit about a possible COVID-19 exposure among our staff, our business swung into extreme actions by placing the office building under lock and keys, suspending business operations, and subjecting all employees that could have been in contact with the staff to mandatory and monitored quarantine, separate from their families, till we received the result of the test carried out on the exposed staff. Our business had since been placed on emergency mode and was prepared for both best cases and worst cases. .

I can now confirm the bright development that our staff tested negative to the virus in the early minutes of today. While this sounds like a big relief to Nigeria and Nigerians, it is a testament to the pandemic nature of COVID-19, and should not be taken for granted by anyone and for any reason. .

We extend our solidarity to everyone fighting the virus, especially our staff’s cousin who recently tested positive. We pray that they are blessed with the strength and fortitude to withstand the waiting time for the virus to run its course. .

Going forward, we will be taking further precautionary measure to disinfect our Ikeja office building today, March 18, air it out tomorrow, and resume business as usual on Friday. We take health and safety very seriously and will stop at nothing to ensure that our staff and clients are at their tip-top always. .

Stay safe and stay healthy, as we work together to win COVID-19 together. .

AAI

I’ve seen the story b4. It illustrates what I was telling some people - 9ja has done nothing to warrant being praised the way they were praising us. We did exactly the same thing Italy did. So anything that would have happened would have started happening by now.
I hope u can see how the story illustrates my point - there is something preventing Nigerians from catching any deadly form of corona. Just as in Senegal where 27 people have tested positive so far. ALL are returnees from hot spots or family members of returnees from hot spots, none serious, some without symptoms, and some have already tested negative again! I’m pretty sure our hot sun and warm humid weather has something to do with it!

My God
Your judgement is swift
Who will be able to stand in the day of your anger
O' merciful Lord , you have been patient and merciful for years
Your long suffering has been for long

Now its time for you to pour your wrath on the head of the wicked

But Lord, remember for your name sake your promise , that as many that fear your holy name , and keep your commandments, you' will exempt them from the dangers

Please Lord save those people who you've elected from the foundation of the earth
Those who fears you and tremble at your words

Stories that touch the Heart..

The Truth about the Covid-19 Matter in Nigeria is that if you Believing and Working with what is being put out in the Media , then you must be a Joker..

It is 90% sure that a whole lot of people in Nigeria are with the Virus..

It's Just The Mercy of GOD that is Keeping Nigerians from Experiencing what Italy is Experiencing..

Like I always say, Let these Endtime events bring us Back to GOD and Make us to Amend our ways and Accept JESUS CHRIST..

This is just Ordinary Virus and the World is shaking..

Imagine what it will be like on Earth if JESUS Appears today and takes His own away..

The World is Winding up... Don't be Caught Unawares...

I just don't know why this government and her officials are just filled with vile and propaganda. They always lie; nothing coming from them can be trusted.

They released a report claiming that they were in control of the situation of this UK returnee and that all necessary precautionary and medical measures were put in place. But alas, even after confirmation that the said victim is positive they still refuse to put all precautionary measures in place as claimed by the victim's close friend.

With the way things are, I strongly believe that this virus is in Nigeria and spreading without notice. The NYSC camp prematurely shuts down, Abuja doctors going on strike coz of this virus, postponement of sports festivals and lots of negative body language from the government all indicates that something is wrong.

Finally, why will a sane government still leaves her borders open at this moment? may God save us in this country
