‘You don’t need social distancing when you put on protective mask’ – Cross Rivers state governor tells residents
Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River says there is no need for social distancing in the fight against Coronavirus as long as people put on a face mask.
In a video being circulated on social media, Ayade who is a PhD holder in Microbiology, said the use of face masks automatically protects people from contracting the ravaging Coronavirus. In his words
“Because I’m a professor of science and I know how this virus moves; I know its etiology, I know it transmissibility, I know its antigenicity; because I do, I know that once you put on this mask, you have already been protected.
“You don’t need social distancing when you are properly protected because your mucal glands that secrets the mucus and the musins already forms a network of coats to attack the virus.”
