Worried at the development, the SSA to Governor Okowa on Security frowned at the development while describing the unprecedented contagious nature of coronavirus.
He had begged Deltans to completely ignore roadside hawkers as the dangers associated with it is quite high, noting that the lives of every Deltans, matters.
He said citizens must always be alert to protect themselves and avoid whatever that will exposed them to be at risk with the virus.
However, Daniel Ezekiel, the Aluta SSA as he is fondly referred to by his friends had called on Deltans to always give total support to his boss, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as he takes steps in dealing with the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the Aluterising SSA had reiterated that coronavirus is real as there should be no doubt about its reality, recommending that Deltans should purchase their face masks from certified pharmacists in the state.
