Former Nigerian senator, Dino Melaye, has taken his time to explain the meaning of isolation, quarantine and lockdown to his followers on social media.
Nigerians and the world at large have been asked to observe social distancing because of the novel coronavirus while those who have contracted or had contact with those with the virus have been asked to self-isolate.
Some or all parts of the countries where large numbers of coronavirus cases have been recorded have been put on lockdown, including Nigeria where President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a total lockdown of Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State.
In trying to sarcastically explain some of those terminologies which have become popular because of the infection, Melaye took to his Twitter page to share a post that has since gone viral.
He wrote: "My People Life is for the Living. Lets enjoy this compo holiday. Laugh &Play, if you're staying at home with money you're in isolation, if you're staying at home, broke, you're in quarantine, but if you're staying at home, broke and with trouble wife, you're in total lockdown.”
