The communique also urged the general public to adhere to COVID-19 guidelines so as to contain the pandemic in the state
It appealed to the media to help in dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding COVID-19 pandemic so as to mitigate its effects on the society.
The communique advised the public to always source for information on COVID-19 and other related diseases from reliable sources to avoid unnecessary panic occasioned by fake news.
