Coronavirus: Ogun State Government orders road users to wear hand gloves and nose masks
Ogun State Government is leaving no stone unturned as they continue to fight the spread of coronavirus across the state.
With two reported cases so far, Governor Dapo Abiodun has intensified efforts in enhancing preventive measures among residents.
Following the daily review of the coronavirus pandemic on Monday, Governor Abiodun who is also the incident commander, approved more measures to combat the spread of the virus.
Last week, the State banned any gathering of more than 50 people including schools, religious assemblies, clubs and bars.
In a new development, drivers, passengers and conductors have been ordered to wear hand gloves and nose masks throughout the duration of their trips, irrespective of the ownership or use (commercial, private or company).
Transport unions within Ogun State are also urged to take the temperature of drivers, conductors and passengers before trips while the threshold [two persons per row in a bus, one passenger per motorcycle, two persons per tricycle, three passengers per taxi cab] should not be exceeded.
The new measure also bans visits to government offices during this period while markets and banking institutions have been advised not to allow more than 20 people gather at a point.
“COVID-19 is a raging pandemic that is threatening global peace and safety. As a responsible Government, we cannot take chances,” Governor Abiodun noted.
