Nollywood star, Nse Ikpe-Etim, has gone into self-isolation after returning from her UK trip on Thursday.
Ikpe-Etim disclosed this via several tweets on her verified page.
She, however, made it clear she has not displayed any coronavirus symptoms, but was taking steps as a responsible citizen.
Hi lovelies, yesterday morning, I returned to Lagos from the UK – one of the countries listed as a COVID-19 hotspot by the Federal Ministry of Health.
“I am presently in self-isolation according to the directives of the NCDC and in constant communication with them.
“So far, I have not displayed any symptoms of the Coronavirus.
However, I will maintain my isolation and keep people at bay till the coast is clear. I hope everyone is responsible enough to do the same.
“Avoid public gatherings as much as you can. Wash your hands and sanitize them often. Stock up your home with essentials, while being considerate to others so they too can and most importantly, don’t panic. This too shall pass.
“Love, and Light,” Ikpe-Etim wrote.
There are previously 12 recorded cases but currently, 10 more cases have been recorded in Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, imposed a travel ban on 13 high risk countries of COVID-19 including UK.
