Ekiti State First Lady, Erelu Bisi Fayemi has come out to warn those who are abandoning COVID-19 safety protocols in the state to have a rethink.

She recently revealed that Nigerians should keep adhering to safety protocols in every gathering because the pandemic is not over.

According to her, after the #EndSARS protests, and reopening of the airports which has resulted in movements in and out of the country, a 2nd wave of the virus is very possible in Nigeria.

She then begged the wives of traditional rulers to use their positions to enlighten the people on the need to stay safe during this period.

Her words on Gender-Based Violence, “As we all know that there will not be pardon for any Gender-Based Violence (GBV) offenders in our State. Ekiti State is one state being emulated by other States when it comes to the issues of Gender-Based Violence and fighting for the rights of every woman and the vulnerable amongst us.”

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea. There are yet to be vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.

Coronaviruses constitute the subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, in the family Coronaviridae, order Nidovirales, and realm Riboviria. They are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry. The genome size of coronaviruses ranges from approximately 27 to 34 kilobases, the largest among known RNA viruses.

The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the characteristic appearance reminiscent of a crown or a solar corona around the virions (virus particles) when viewed under two-dimensional transmission electron microscopy, due to the surface covering in club-shaped protein spikes.
