Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim on Friday said she had put herself in self-isolation after arriving from the United Kingdom.
Nigeria’s health minister, Osagie Ehanire, has advised all visitors arriving into the country to self-quarantine for 14 days, in order to limit the possible spread of the deadly new coronavirus.
The self-quarantine is highly recommended especially for those arriving from coronavirus hotspot countries, including the United Kingdom.
“Yesterday, in the morning, I returned to Lagos from the UK — one of the states listed as a COVID-19 hotspot by the Federal Ministry of Health,” Ikpe-Etim mentioned on Twitter.

“I hope everyone is responsible enough to do the same.”
