“Please take measures to stay safe and healthy during Ramadan.
”Wear a face mask. Observe physical distance.Wash hands frequently. Avoiding gatherings and crowded places,” it advised.
NCDC however, urged Nigerians to continue to practice all COVID-19 preventive measures.
The agency added that getting the COVID-19 vaccine did not stop Nigerians from getting exposed to someone who had been infected.
”But, with the vaccination, they will develop immunity that would stop the infection from progressing to the virus,” it said.
