On Monday, the Edo government urged residents in the state to make sure they protect the elderly, considered most vulnerable to COVID-19, following the outbreak of a second wave of the pandemic.

The Secretary of the State Government (SSG), Mr. Osarodion Ogie, who gave the advice in a statement in Benin on Monday, assured that the government was implementing the appropriate measures throughout the state to control the new wave of the virus.

He urged residents to comply with all safety and precautionary guidelines against the spread of the virus, in order to protect the elderly population, which is the most vulnerable.

“As part of the response to the second wave of COVID-19, the Edo government has reactivated the isolation and treatment centers, 4 molecular PCR laboratories, and its contact tracing network to ensure the pandemic is contained.

“We are also increasing public awareness of the need for residents to take personal responsibility for staying safe to protect the elderly in our state.

“As we go about our daily activities, let’s observe all precautionary measures against the spread of infectious disease, including regular hand washing with soap and running water,” he said.

Ogie said that the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, covering the mouth and nose properly when sneezing or coughing, were also important protocols to follow.
