After Nollywood actress, Angela Okorie shared a clip of someone treating her battered face which was caused by an attack from “assasins”, Regina Asika has warned her to use sterile instruments and gloves, else she is risking an infection.
According to Asika, who is a registered nurse in America, said infection in such a wound has to be prevented as she treats it if she does not want any future complications.
All we can say is, the nurse knows what she is talking about.
Get well soon Angela.
