The Lagos State Government has ordered all participants at the just concluded African Magic viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) 2020 in the state to subject themselves to immediate self-isolation to curb the spread of COVID-19.
AMVCA held on Saturday, March 14, and the event had many celebrities from both home and abroad in attendance.
However, it held at a time when the coronavirus pandemic began spreading in Nigeria. Days after the event held, rumours spread that an attendee is possibly down with the virus and may have exposed other attendees to it.
After weeks of speculations, it has been revealed by the Honourable Commissioner for Health of Lagos State, Professor Akin Abayomi that all participants that attended the event may have come in contact with one of the confirmed cases in Lagos and most likely been exposed to the coronavirus.
He further urged that the individuals observe strict self-isolation and contact health workers should they notice any coronavirus-related symptoms.
Some of the guests at the event were former Senator Dino Melaye, Hip hop artist, Tuface Idibia, Funke Akindele-Bello, Mercy Aigbe, Toyin Aimakhu etc.
