Kaduna State Covid-19 Response

Coronavirus

COVID-19

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.

Do and Don'ts

The COVID-19 Transmission Index clarifies the public health metrics that are used to determine which counties are at what level of transmission: high, moderate, or low. These levels correspond directly to the case rates, positivity rates, and ICU utilization.

The data helps us understand the real risk of transmission in our communities. Important health behaviors, based on epidemiology and medical science, are described at each level to protect yourself, your family, and your community from COVID-19.

DO: Wear face mask always

DO: Travel when necessary

DO: Exercise locally

DON'T: Shake hands

DON'T: Want-in Restaurant​

DON'T: Visit Gov. Offices

Protect yourself and our community!

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

Frequently Asked Questions

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are normally transmitted between animals and people. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by a new strain of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that has not been previously identified in humans. It was first reported to WHO on the 31st of December, 2019 in Wuhan, China.

Scientists and public health officials are working hard to identify the source of the SARS-CoV-2 which is the virus that causes COVID-19. The initial transmission appeared to be from an animal source, but there has been person-to-person transmission in countries.

There have been reported outbreaks of COVID-19 in some closed settings, such as restaurants, nightclubs, places of worship or places of work where people may be shouting, talking, or singing.

This means that aerosol transmission, especially in indoor locations where there are crowded and inadequately ventilated spaces where infected persons spend long periods of time with others, cannot be ruled out.

WHO has called for more studies to investigate such instances and assess their significance for transmission of COVID-19.

No. The Federal Government has approved the resumption of inter-state travel, with appropriate safety protocols in place. However, the restriction in movement from 10pm to 4am remains in place to limit social interactions and reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19. Persons that are on essential duty are exempted from the curfew.

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shivering /shaking (chills)
  • Body pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Recent loss of taste or smell
  • Difficulty in breathing/shortness of breath
  • Diarrhoea/abdominal pain
  • Runny nose/catarrh
  • Fatigue (tiredness)

There is no specific cure yet for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials to test various potential antivirals. Current management of cases aims to relieve the symptoms while the body’s immune system fights the illness.

This is an effective strategy to reduce physical interaction between people towards limiting the spread of COVID-19. This means maintaining a distance of at least 2 metres from others. The NCDC guidelines on this can be found here.

This measure involves strict adherence to:

  • Non-contact greetings (avoiding shaking of hands and hugs)
  • Maintaining at least 2 metres physical distance between yourself and individuals
  • Avoiding gatherings of more than 50 persons and any gathering where physical distancing is not observed

This means strictly staying at home or identified accommodation, away from situations where you mix with family members or the general public, for a period of 14 days. The NCDC guidelines on this can be found here.
