He said: "The government needs your cooperation once again. Make sure you take precautions because taking just a few precautions can save the lives of your loved ones and countrymen."

Briefing the meeting, Umar said that the spread of coronavirus in the country was becoming alarming, and the current epidemic is more deadly than ever as it is spreading very fast.
