Ooni alerts Nigerians to second wave of COVID-19
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has alerted Nigerians to the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, adding that it is deadlier than the first.
The Ooni, who is co-chairman of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN), issued the warning in his Christmas/New Year message.
He noted: “The pandemic is very much around. It is erroneous to think that the rampaging virus has gone after the first wave.
“The wave of coronavirus we are dealing with now is deadlier than what we had in the first two quarters of the concluding year 2020. So, I want to appeal to our people that it is not yet over.
“We must not lose our guard, as we can hear in the news that more people are now testing positive for the virus.”
