As some states close in on the reopening of religious worship places, especially in Lagos State in two weeks’ time, Prof Akin Abayomi has issued a warning to those between the ages below to stay away from either mosques or church.
The advice to the elderly people was said by Prof Akin Abayomi at a press conference at Alausa. He also added that the state government is concerned about those that are over 65 as they contract and react to the disease easily.
“If you are over the age of 65, you should not go to these houses of worship. In fact, you should continue to exercise due diligence as to where you go and to what kind of environments you go to.
“For now, we are advising that over the age of 65, avoid these engagements. For those that do go to this engagement and go back home, what happens? Those that do go to the houses of spiritual worship, while you are there, we have cut down the number of people that can be in a room.
“And while you are in that room, you must practice what we are standardizing as social distancing so that it reduces your chance of contracting the virus and taking the virus home to where you may have somebody in the house above the age of 65.”
