Coronavirus: Churches to provide water, soap, sanitizer to worshippers


Nigerian Churches have been instructed by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), to provide make water, soap and hand sanitizers for worshippers before and after service, beginning from Sunday, as hygienic measures against COVID-19 otherwise known as coronavirus.

CAN General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, in a statement released a while ago, called on politicians and other health care system managers not to politicise the matter but join hands with local and international authorities and partners to ensure the disease does not spread beyond Lagos.

He strongly advocated cooperation and understanding between states and Federal Government, as well as international agencies, particularly the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure coordinated response to the global health challenges.

“All hands must also be on deck by our brilliant scientists, microbiologists, virologists and all relevant health professionals to be alive to their callings and put their academic prowess into action. Advocacy and sensitization should be made over this to create awareness.”
