GOVERNMENT SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT


It is hereby announced for the information of the general public particularly Deltans that as a proactive measure to checkmate the outbreak and spread of Corona Virus, otherwise known as COVID-19 Pandemic in the State, His Excellency, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta State, has directed that all tertiary institutions, public and private primary and secondary schools in the state be closed for 30 days with effect from Thursday March 26, 2020.

Also, the ongoing Headmaster’s Football Cup Competition and all internal examinations scheduled for the period are to be put on hold till schools re-open

Although, there is yet no confirm case of COVID-19 in the state, the State Government has established a multi-purpose built isolation centre at the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba to handle any emergency in the event of any outbreak.

Government has also identified and established holding rooms in all Zonal and State Hospitals across the state as well as training of five members of the Rapid Response Team in each local government area.

The State Ministry of Health has embarked on training of healthcare personnel to work at the isolation ward as well as training and engagement of 129 Red Cross Workers across the State.

As a further precautionary measure, all passengers arriving Asaba Airport are subjected to temperature measurement and all in-coming sea vessel are to observe a 14 -day quarantine period to be cleared by the Port Health Personnel before birthing in any Seaport in Delta State.

The general public is advised that the best way to prevent the virus is to avoid being exposed to it by avoiding close contact with people who are sick or appeared to be sick and practice social distancing, by avoiding hand shake and hug and to maintain about five feet distance when talking with people.

Government therefore appeal to members of the public to remain calm and vigilant and to wash their hands thoroughly with water and soap for 20 secs after leaving the office, workshop, market, bus or taxi, Motor Park, and public gathering of any sort and to visit the hospital whenever there is any sign of sickness and avoid self medication.

Another good move by another state .....

When is Bayelsa Rivers state going to close the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary institutions in the state?

We hope the lives of those little ones matters to Wike?
He should get his sh#t straight this moment.

May God keep protecting all our friends, clients and family members in that part of the country.........and all Riverans and Nigerians overall.

Saudi Arabia was able to contain COVID-19 from entering their country, they quickly closed their borders, cancelled all pilgrimages, quarantined passengers from all incoming flights for 14 days.
But the more religious Nigerian leaders did the complete opposite and now they are asking Nigerians to PRAY cry cry

And some people above me who sleep on this site will use this platform and refer to the failed leaders in Aso Villa as our darling leaders. I won't ask Coro to infect them because I am good citizen

We're is iron man, captain america Thor, winter soldier, black panther, all the avengers when we need one.

We are quick to give the highest movie honor to fiction( our own fansy or imaginations) but " true life drama gets nothing". A movie about mandela gets nothing. Just mere appreciation.

Because we have no real enemies to combat we imagine aliens from space. Here we are with a real Alien virus.

Make a movie about the doctors and scientist now and give them their awards. They are the real heroes and has always been.

Dear parents,
The federal government has asked all students in tertiary institutions across the country to vacate the school for one month. If by Monday your daughter is not at home, just know that one boy has quarantined her.

THANK YOU
