The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi KANU has urged all his members to be self-isolated and engage in regular sanitiser to be safe from coronavirus.
The virus mainly spreads from person to person through droplet transmission in close contact. The virus can survive on surfaces and can also be transmitted as a contact infection by handling materials or surfaces contaminated with the sputum of an infected person. Nevertheless, this is not considered the main route of infection.
In everyday life, you can reduce your risk of infection by maintaining good hand hygiene.
Nnamdi Kanu tells all IPOB members to engage in COVID-19 prevention regularly.
GENERAL CLEANING IN ALL TYPES OF PREMISES
- Start cleaning from cleaner areas and proceed towards dirtier areas. All surfaces that are frequently touched (e.g. door handles, armrests, tabletops, light switches, water taps) need to be cleaned thoroughly and frequently
- In public premises where people touch the surfaces, the cleaning should be done daily at least. If possible even more often e.g. between 2-4 hours especially during the epidemic.
- The public premises of workplaces must be cleaned using different equipment than the premises used by employees
- Use a mildly alkaline all-purpose detergent for cleaning. The cleaning of sanitary facilities can be enhanced by using a disinfectant
- Wear gloves to protect the hands when cleaning surfaces. After cleaning, the gloves must either be carefully washed and dried or replaced with a new pair.
- Use tight-fitting disposable gloves, for example, as all-purpose gloves. Long gloves must be used when cleaning toilets, and the gloves must then be kept separate from other cleaning equipment until they are carefully washed with water and detergent at the end of the cleaning round. See instructions on how to take off disposable gloves (in Finnish).
- Carefully clean the equipment used in cleaning at the end of the cleaning process.
- Use leakproof and easily removable bags in waste bins. Monitor waste bins and do not let them get more than three-quarters full. Empty waste bins daily, especially in public premises. The collected bin bags must be closed tightly and disposed of in mixed waste for incineration.
- Wash hands and forearms with water and soap when the gloves are taken off.
