David Ugbabe

Following the increasing number of the Coronavirus cases identified in Nigeria which has risen to about 65 as at Thursday, 26th, a lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo 1 Federal Constituency of Lagos State, Bashorun Dawodu, has advised the Federal Government to penalize those who might have entered the country without subjecting themselves to medical test.

According to Dawodu who spoke with ‘The Nation’, such drastic measure should be adopted as such persons are putting the lives of others at risk by failing to subject themselves to medical test and possible isolation, as part of efforts to curb the spread of Covid 19.

The legislator, who is a member of the House Committee on Health Services, therefore, advised that those who might have entered the country without subjecting themselves to test be tracked down.

He also added that the country must put in place measures to fight emergency situations by setting aside a special fund for such and making provision for health care delivery.
