As the reported cases of the COVID-19 pandemic is increasing across nations, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has sent out a self-isolation guide to all returning travelers to Nigeria and anyone who has been in close contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus disease COVID-19.

Self-isolation as defined by the NCDC “means strictly staying at home or identified accommodation, away from situations where you mix with family members or the general public, for the period of 14 days. This means any situation where you may come in close contact with others (face to face contact closer than 2 metres i.e. 5 feet)”.

If during your 14-day self-isolation you develop symptoms of COVID-19 such as:

  • Cough
  • High temperature (fever)
  • Shortness of breath (or difficulty in breathing)
  • Or general feeling of unwellness,

avoid self-medication rather contact NCDC Connect Centre immediately
