Reacting to palpable anxiety being expressed by residents of Kwara as the state recorded its first two cases of coronavirus, Afro Pop singer, Ayokanmi Oluwasegun Eyanro, aka Frequencie, has called for calm, saying that identification of infected persons with the virus should be seen as a good omen.
In his recent social and traditional media messages, the artiste said it is better to identify infected people than to miss such and risk further spread of the deadly coronavirus disease.
According to him, negligence and delay by some of the advanced nations to commence test at early stage and swiftly identify those infected had contributed to the worsening state of things.
Frequencie, who also frowned at the “poor handling of the suspected coronavirus case at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), said that, “no preferential treatment should be given to patients at this critical moment because the disease itself is a leveler that shows no regard to anyone.
“I wonder why anyone will even want to hide his status or get special treatment in this situation we find ourselves.
“In the real sense of it, the elite in the society should lead by example by disclosing their status and share their success story to encourage the common man to show readiness to fight this scourge”.
He implored Kwarans and other Nigerians to adhere strictly to precautionary measures for prevention and control of the deadly Coronavirus.
”Wash your hands regularly, apply alcohol based sanitizer and improve personal hygiene. Dear fans, obey every government directives at this critical moment to prevent and control COVID 19 spread”, he said.
Frequencie, had for a while now been preaching on radio station, newspapers and also using his social media handles to pass down this informations to his fans and members of the public in general.
