The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) has urged Nigerians to always source for relevant information on preventive measures about coronavirus from reputable health agencies and organizations.
Mrs Blessing Ejiofor, UNICEF Communication Officer, Lagos Office, in an electronic statement on Thursday said the organization in collaboration with WHO was supporting the Nigerian government’s response to the outbreak.
Ejiofor said UNICEF was aware of messages being circulated that were being falsely attributed to the organization.
She, however, said that all genuine information could be found on its website, www.unicef.org.
Ejiofor said people could also see the WHO website for further updated information.
According to her, UNICEF is leading on preventative actions in communities with risk communication, providing hygiene and medical kits to schools and health clinics and monitoring the impact of the outbreak to support continuity of care, education and social services.
